Twenty years after a widespread pandemic and the collapse of civilization, a group of actors and musicians known as "The Traveling Symphony" visit various settlements trying to keep the arts alive in this altered world. The story moves back and forth in time contrasting each of the character's pre-pandemic normalities to their post-apocalyptic lives, revealing the twist of fate that connects the troupe.
