So, I think there are two possible options. The first, humanity could have just vanished or disappeared without leaving any sign, and they are the last humans on Earth and have to survive. Or maybe it’s them who can’t be seen by humanity and the other way around. Therefore, they’ll be also trying to survive but not to the end of the world.  By Lara G 

 

I think that society banished, this had happened because of a catastrophe, which the two protagonists clearly weren’t aware of. Maybe the reason for it was to showcase what the earth would look like without humans and civilizations in it; this is something nobody knows what it would be like. In my opinion, the purpose of this sudden disappearance is to demonstrate how much of a damage we cause to the planet earth. By Lola G
