Years after a plague kills most of humanity and transforms the rest into monsters, the sole survivor in New York City struggles valiantly to find a cure.

He had this idea. It was kind of a virologist idea. He believed that you could cure racism and hate… literally cure it, by injecting music and love into people’s lives. When he was scheduled to perform at a peace rally, a gunman came to his house and shot him down. Two days later he walked out on that stage and sang. When they asked him why – He said, “The people, who were trying to make this world worse… are not taking a day off. How can I? Light up the darkness.”

Look, Daddy, it’s a butterfly!

In 2009, a deadly virus burned through our civilization, pushing humankind to the edge of extinction. Dr. Robert Neville dedicated his life to the discovery of a cure and the restoration of humanity. On September 9th, 2012, at approximately 8:49 P.M., he discovered that cure. And at 8:52, he gave his life to defend it. We are his legacy. This is his legend. Light up the darkness.

The world is quieter now. We just have to listen. If we listen, we can hear God’s plan.
– Anna
God’s plan.
– Neville
Yeah.
– Anna
All right, let me tell you about your “God’s plan”. Seven billion people on Earth when the infection hit. KV had a ninety-percent kill rate, that’s five point four billion people dead. Crashed and bled out. Dead. Less than one-percent immunity. That left twelve million healthy people, like you, me, and Ethan. The other five hundred and eighty-eight million turned into your dark seekers, and then they got hungry and they killed and fed on everybody. Everybody! Every *single* person that you or I has ever known is dead! Dead! There is no god!
– Neville

I’m listening.
– Neville

It’s just… I was saving that bacon!
– Neville

I like Shrek.
– Neville

You can’t go running into the dark.
– Neville

Nothin’ happened the way it was supposed to happen.
– Neville

I can help. I can save you. I can save everybody!
– Neville

What the hell are you doing out here, Fred? Fred, if you’re real, you better tell me right now!
– Neville

Come on, Sam. We gotta go.
– Neville

My name is Robert Neville. I am a survivor living in New York City. I am broadcasting on all AM frequencies. I will be at the South Street Seaport everyday at mid-day, when the sun is highest in the sky. If you are out there… if anyone is out there… I can provide food, I can provide shelter, I can provide security. If there’s anybody out there… anybody… please. You are not alone.
– Neville

This is Ground Zero. This is my site. I can fix. I can fix this.
– Neville

Just how you like it… disgusting!
– Neville

Day one thousand and one. We came in close contact with a hive today. Blood tests confirm that I remain immune to both the airborne and contact strains. Canines remain immune to airborne strain only. The vaccine trials continue. I’m still unable to transfer my immunity to infected hosts. The Krippen Virus is… elegant.
– Neville
Just fishin’ in the dark, son.
– Neville
Behavioral note – an infected male exposed himself to sunlight today. Now it’s possible decreased brain function or growing scarcity of food is causing them to… ignore their basic survival instincts. Social de-evolution appears complete. Typical human behavior is now entirely absent.
– Neville

Eat your vegetables. Don’t just push ’em around, eat ’em. I ain’t playin’!
