Plot Synopsis

The world as we know it has ended. Six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wipes out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two Danish siblings -- Simone and Rasmus -- emerge from the safety of their bunker to find all remnants of civilization gone. Soon they join a group of young survivors and together set out on a danger-filled quest through an abandoned Scandinavia, searching for any sign of life. Set free from their collective past and societal rules, the group has the freedom to be who they want to be. In their struggle for survival, they discover that even in a post-apocalyptic world there's still love, jealousy, and many of the coming of age dilemmas they thought they'd left behind with the disappearance of the world they once knew. Simone and the others set out for Apollon headquarters in Sweden, but their trek through Copenhagen is fraught with peril. Jealousy flares in Martin and Beatrice. Simone and Rasmus meet a doctor with a connection to their father. A memory haunts Jean. Lost in the woods, the group stumbles upon a mansion. The residents invite them to stay the night, and Lea bonds with one of the women. On Friday, May 4, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the eight-episode first season of RAIN.

When the virus grows even more dangerous, the friends race to find a cure. But as Apollon closes in, their loyalties are tested. The season opens with the group on the run from Apollon soldiers, while following a set of coordinates to a base where rebel scientists are working on a vaccine for the virus. Then, Martin accompanies Simone on a journey to retrieve her father's computer. At the base, Patrick stumbles upon a hidden room filled with strange devices.
