1.5 stars?

Okay... well. This one didn't do very much for me. I had expected something different, and what this was was boring.

Here's your story: An old man, who is all that is left of a bygone civilization, tries to tell 4 young boy-savages about it. The boys and the old man don't understand each other because they are from two different worlds. The old man tells the story of what the Scarlet Plague and its aftermath was like.

I just couldn't really drum up any interest in this one. Yeah, that's about it. Disappointing.

At least it was short.
