TOWERS: Two adventurous young women trip the post-apocalyptic American landscape when the human race becomes virtually extinct from mutations caused by radiation from cellphones and towers. This post apocalyptic enigma is scored by an intense indie rock soundtrack.
Cellular radiation destroyed the flow of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine to. The planet went up in a tsunami of violence and suicide after FEMA announced the condition was permanent.
Two years after the fatal prognosis, the world is virtually extinct.
Jane survived in a bunker under her Amish farm. Recalling the glory of her wild days set free during the sect's coming of age Rumspringa ritual, she transforms into a glorious indie hipster cruising the highways and back roads of America searching for life and pills. Her chariot is a beat up convertible outfitted with a mobile ham radio.
The only voice is DJ Spectacle. Somewhere on the East Coast, he spins wild tunes waxing philosophical upon the state of non-humanity and the conditions which led to the end.
Petal survived in the deep woods of Oregon, where her folks lived as survivalist hippie pot farmers. Petal is not well. Each day she puts a gun to her head. She is about to pull the trigger as Jane's voice suddenly comes through on the CB.
They form an instant bond. When Petal is convinced to let go of fear, they set out for a cross-country pilgrimage to a party thrown by DJ Spectacle for whoever may still be alive.
