Overview
In 2013 there are no highways, no I-ways, no dreams of a better tomorrow, only scattered survivors across what was once the United States. Into this apocalyptic wasteland comes an enigmatic drifter with a mule, a knack for Shakespeare and something yet undiscovered: the power to inspire hope.

Dances With Wolves double Academy Award® winner Kevin Costner directs and plays a wayfarer in a world where might makes right — but destined to lead a heroic rebellion where right makes right. Sweeping battle scenes, breathtaking wilderness vistas and touching moments of personal triumph combine to ensure that "The Postman delivers!" (Jay Carr, The Boston Globe).
