In the Christian bible in the book of Revelation 11:3-9, two witnesses with paranormal abilities, preach for 1233 days in Jerusalem during the End Time. MadMen tells their backstory.

MadMen is the futuristic diary of Hannah Augustine, a clairvoyant survivor of China’s nuclear attack on the US. After journeying across country, she and her friend, Liz join a small community of survivors in St. Paul, MN, a few who are developing psych abilities. Hannah also develops such abilities while searching for personal peace after the arrival of a former fiancé, her psychic equal, the talented, but crazed William Martin. The conflict escalates with the arrival of Hannah’s recent lover, Marshall, who also is becoming psychically gifted.

Together they become part of a community of survivors, some who are also psychically “talented”. After a difficult winter, the community of 15 relocates to a farm north of Memphis, Tennessee, joining an existing group there. Some of these people are also part of a psychic group William Martin calls The Thirty. As the Chinese move across the country, destroying the remnant of the US population, conflicts and drama surround the farm colony.

Recognizing that they must leave or die, William, Marshall, and Hannah plan a daring escape for the whole community that will take them to safety in South America. Once the extended family is settled in Columbia, William, Marshall, and Hannah continue their journey across the Atlantic Ocean. Off the coast of Africa, they meet the other witness foretold in Revelation, William’s female counterpart, and together they travel to Jerusalem, as demonic forces work to destroy them all.

ManMen’s controversial content – including unique belief systems, Christian references and sacred rites – as well as the use of pot and alcohol, sexual content, and polygamy – may equally disturb atheist or Christian.

MadMen is designed to provoke thought. It is a work of fiction, and is not meant as a vision of things to come.
