A small band of friends make an uneasy alliance with a mysterious lone wolf in this blend of horror and adventure. An unnamed catastrophe has turned the Earth into a wasteland, and as packs of feral cannibals wander the countryside, a dwindling number of survivors struggle to stay alive. Rick (Dominic Monaghan
), Adam (Shawn Ashmore
), Henson (Cory Hardrict
), and Shannon (Shannyn Sossamon
) have been journeying together for months and are the last living members of a much larger group. Mary (Ashley Bell
) is a solitary woman who crossed paths with the survivors and is now traveling with them. She isn't interested in discussing her past or becoming friends, but the others learn she's a powerful ally in a fight. The travelers take shelter in a house, but are soon surrounded by cannibals; they quickly realize just how strong a warrior Mary can be, while also discovering the terrible truth that led her to wander alone. The Day
was directed by Douglas Aarniokoski
, who has accumulated extensive credits as an assistant director and helming second-unit material on major films.
