Tribal gangs control their patch, protecting individual groups in the area in return for their loyalty, which is demanded and must be absolute - at any and all cost.
Initially, while stocks last, the gangs provide looted processed food. In the future, unless they can teach themselves the technology to rebuild the world they knew, they would have to become hunters/gatherers like their ancestors.
Individual groups react in primitive, often bizarre and at times manic, uncontrolled ways.
But some Tribes - like our group - realise that with disaster comes a new opportunity. A new responsibility. The future is theirs to create. For so long the children had existed in a world governed by adults. The framework of influence had always been parents, teachers, and politicians.
Can their reach extend beyond their grasp?
Will they 'screw up' as they remember the adults doing, or can they evolve new values, priorities, a new consciousness, a hierarchy and society that will eventually create a new sustainable world?
The underlying series thematic will examine the cycle of consciousness determining existence - or existence determining consciousness - interwoven with a range of fascinating social issues, human drama and interplay as the series chronicles the relationships, conflicts, alliances within our group - and the individual hopes, dreams, ambitions, loves and enmities which make up the everyday life and world of - The Tribe.
