A man who begins a lie, somehow inspires a dream, in this post-apocalyptic adaptation of David Brin’s novel ‘The Postman’ of a reluctant hero that rescues a nation. In 2013, a war has left America divided into small, scattered colonies, with a fascist totalitarian Bethlehem and his gang of Holnists murdering and stealing to their hearts content.

He escapes and stumbles across a mail jeep with 15 year-old undelivered mail, and decides to travel the country , calling himself ‘The Postman’ and delivering the mail as he talks of a restored US central government, and somehow inspires the divided to come together and be the dream…
