Welcome to The Raffle: Your Chance Of A Lifetime.
Trust and show trust. Those are the rules of the New United States. Everyone must follow the rules.
In a dark vision of the near future, Los Angeles has become a desolate wasteland after a prolonged biological and nuclear attack that paralyzed California on a day that the rest of the nation celebrated independence. Now for the unlucky New Angelinos, there is only one way out: gain entry into the New United States through The Raffle.
When raffler Ramsey Arami finds himself with the winning number after ten years of trying, he sees it as the golden ticket to finally reunite with his wife and daughter in the New United States. That is, if he can follow the rules of the New United States.
