“Station Eleven is a post-apocalyptic saga that follows survivors of a devastating flu as they attempt to rebuild and reimagine the world anew while holding on to the best of what’s been lost.”

The primary protagonist of the story, Kirsten Raymonde will be played by Mackenzie Davis.
The author, Emily St. John Mandel wrote:
“When I was researching and writing [the book], what I found myself thinking about all the time is how fragile civilization is, and how we should never take it for granted. It just doesn’t take much for things to fall apart.”
Twenty years after the deadly outbreak, a band of actors known as ‘Travelling Symphony’ explore the post-apocalyptic circumstances on screen, attempting to obtain a new purpose in the devastated world.
