2048 A.D. Earth has been remapped by climate change. The human population now decimated by disease, famine, wars over water and food, and The Four Plagues. This is the backdrop against which LORELEI X, the last person ever born, has come of age. After her mother is mortally wounded by a creature that seems more worm than man, Lorelei is taken in by a survivalist sect that all but worships the image of a worm draped around a cross. Held against her will deep within the sect’s compound, Lorelei becomes not only an unwitting egg donor in a fertility experiment but the youngest student in a boarding school for the damned–a motley lot of teens rescued and scavenged from the growing wilds, only to be treated like livestock. When the compound is breached by a death cult intent on wiping out the last of humanity, the resident doctor’s secret experiments are released–and revealed to resemble the humanoid worm that killed Lorelei’s mother. Soon, hunted by the death cult, the sect and the abominable experiments, and now with something growing inside her, Lorelei appears destined to become the final final girl.
