In 2003, a parasitic fungal infection
ravages the planet, turning humans into violent creatures known as the
Infected. Twenty years later, hardened survivor Joel (Pedro Pascal) is
hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of an oppressive
quarantine zone in hopes of delivering her to the rebel Fireflies. But
what should be a quick job soon becomes a brutal and heartbreaking
journey as they traverse a desolate U.S. – while depending on each
other’s unique skills for survival.
