With the tone from Stranger Things and Goonies along with the heroic journey from Stand By Me, with a little bit of Mad Max thrown in, “The Last Bookstore” is a page turning adventure based on the award-winning screenplay from Brooke Purdy and Colette Freedman. “No… it wasn’t zombies.” In a post-apocalyptic world, a devastating electromagnetic pulse has wiped out the global power grid. The remaining survivors have split into various factions of a new society. The Landers – farmers who live in the outskirts of the city, Underfolk – a rumored group of cannibals who live in the tunnels beneath the city and Blighters – a diseased, barbaric gang who control the old cities and are led by Xander, a soulless psychopath. When Lander kids Jack (14) and his little sister Beckett discover that their mother Avery is dying of the Bleeds – a seemingly incurable new virus, they learn that only one thing can save her… Information. The only place they could possibly find what they need is within a fabled abandoned bookstore, rumored to be in dangerous Blighter territory. Against all odds, the kids sneak out with their friends and set out to find the book in order to save their mother and their dying community.When the technological age has brought humanity to its brink, it is, ultimately five kids, their love and a book that can save mankind.
