Introduction

A chemical war leaves most of humanity unable to reproduce. Sadly, only rare couples, such as Sherry and Tim McAllister, are able to have healthy normal children.

Opening narration

Every child born is linked in a chain to generations past and future. But what happens when that chain is snapped?

Plot

Sherry (a school teacher who has just advocated to her pre-teen students how important it is to be fertility tested and become sexually active and breed as soon as possible) and Tim McAllister conceive and become the focus of intense attention from the government. The couple slowly come to the realization of how important the pregnancy is to the government, and how far it will go to get what it wants in what could be the first non-mutated birth in ten years. They find themselves escorted under armed guard to a secret maternity hospital overseen by Dr. Clayton Royce, a USA governmental Secretary in charge of births, from which they are not allowed to leave. The McAllisters are truly horrified when they find that Dr. Royce has hidden designs on their new-born son as he intends him to be a permanent ward of the state.

The McAllisters are secreted out of the hospital by the terrorist group NWA (New World Army) who had infiltrated the hospital. They are taken to a remote, forested location where the NWA nurse reveals that many of the NWA are ex-army and that their terrorist activity is only a front to distract the government from the NWA's true purpose. There have been many healthy births over the past ten years. Dozens upon dozens of non-mutated children are being raised to re-establish human civilization after the current generation of adult humans in the rest of the world die.

Closing narration

Just as we inherited the Earth of our forefathers, we too will bequeath this world — so long as there are children to claim the inheritance.
