“Love and Monsters” (originally titled “Monster Problems”) is set in a post-apocalyptic time when giant monsters have taken over the Earth’s surface, forcing humankind into underground colonies.

As Joel realizes that there’s nothing left for him underground, he decides against all logic to venture out to Aimee. Along his dangerous journey he makes unlikely friends including a heroic dog and a pair of survivalists (Michael Rooker and Ariana Greenblatt) who help him survive the monster-infested road to true love.
