Steve Butts: "The demo begins with a few flashes of the world before things went to hell. The player is a little child riding a rather grim subway with his mother. He keeps staring at a poster on the train advertising ice cream, stealing glances up at his mom from time to time. The scene then shifts to two scavengers, one of whom is the player, opening the doors of an abandoned subway car. Right there is the same poster. The implication, I suppose, is that the scavenger you're playing is the same little boy from the previous vision."
