Feeling lonely, Marko finds refuge and answers to everything in his only precious possession, a picture book.   

One day his curiosity takes him beyond the forbidden boundaries of the forest, and a mysterious woman finds him. The woman treats Marko well, something Marko has never felt before. She also has an innocent, gentle son with Down’s syndrome named Miko. Their meeting remains a secret. A few days later, the woman is wounded, and Marko see his Father kill her.

Pursued by a few surviving fanatics who believe the world must end, Marko’s search and hope to find his Fairy takes him to an abandoned city. Fleeing the Infected, he encounters a unit of patrolling soldiers. The female officer from the unit intends to take Marko’s life, knowing that no child has been born normally since the outbreak.
