What Pegman Saw: Yellowstone National Park
“Just know that I love you.”
He can’t believe these are going to be the last words will say to his son. They ran from the house when his wife died. Disappeared, actually, but everyone knows she is as good as dead. They’ve been evading the capture for a long time. In this apocalyptic world, people have turned on people. Getting caught by Eaters is assumed to be the worst death. No one knows what they do, but the screams can be heard from miles.
He is looking at the vast stretch of snow. He knows they will die if they try to cross it. Going back isn’t an option, Eaters are closing in. There is only one thing he can do.
He asked his son to turn around. Then he took out the pistol, loaded it with the only bullet left and aimed the gun at his son’s head.
Inspired by The Road – a film about a father and a son trying to survive in an apocalyptic universe. It is an amazing drama starring Viggo Mortensen and directed by John Hillcoat. It is based on a book of the same name written by Cormac McCarthy.
