JUAN IN A MILLION
What If You Woke Up And Everyone Was Gone?
On the morning of December 17th, 2012, Juan goes and delivers his application at his University in Santiago de Chile. After a long year of work he's finished term and is ready for a great summer vacation and wait for the Harvard results. Juan goes to take a nap back home after that hard night and day of work finishing up the process.
Juan wakes up in what seems like hours of sleeping with a huge headache and nausea. After composing himself he realizes he has to hurry for the last party with his friends from the University. After driving a few blocks he realizes the streets are quite calm for a Friday night. Juan arrives to the party to realize that the entire house is empty but there is still music and food everywhere. Juan starts to panic and goes back to his car to take a closer look at the city. He soon realizes that he is completely alone in the city.
Juan tries to accept what is happening and realizing that the Internet appears to work sends a message to who might be listening to contact and help him. After raiding all his friends and family houses in the city Juan soon realizes that they wont come back soon and that he is definitely alone. Santiago de Chile passes from being a 4,5 million inhabitant city, to having just 1 person on the streets. Juan.
Juan must begin his quest to survive in an abandoned world. He keeps looking for answers on where did the people go but he also asks even bigger questions. Why was only Juan left behind.
