What is The Last of Us about?

Over the progression of 9 episodes, Joel and Ellie (Ramsey) transverse the post-apocalyptic country, so she can be safely reunited with a group called The Fireflies (a direct threat to the established military group FEDRA). The world may have collapsed 20 years prior, but the threat of the infected is ever present, as well as survivors who do not live within the (dis)orderly quarantine zones (QZs).

Ellie may be the key to saving humanity however neither character can truly anticipate what they'll be facing. Perhaps the most unexpected of all is the father-daughter relationship Joel and Ellie seem to grow from the most unlikely and unpredictable of times.
