Twins Elias and Elodie live together in their parents' abandoned mansion in what appears to be a postapocalyptic world, where the vast majority of people have vanished from the face of the earth. However, in contrast to most postapocalyptic scenarios, DUST presents us with a picturesque view of a largely untainted country side, in which the siblings live in harmony with their surroundings. This harmony is disrupted, however, when a mysterious man called Gabriel one day shows up and falls in love with Elodie.
