I finally had the chance to live a normal life, away from war and the heartache of knowing that you have nothing under control and that you survive to satisfy the random rate of death in wars, but war never changes, and people who start wars never change either. Things started to change for the worse and now a total nuclear fallout is imminent.

I was enjoying another regular day at home with my wife and son when it happened. We were among the lucky few to have a place in the local vault and we got there in time, but my world falls apart as I witnessed the most horrifying crime inside the safety of the vault, more atrocious than all the crimes committed above.
