Batman attempts to rescue survivors trapped in a part of the city called the Fiveways. On his way, he encounter a bunch of thugs robbing a gun shop and quickly subdues them. Meanwhile, survivors face a desperation with no more food and having been trapped for fourteen days.
Hungry and desperate, they begin looking for other sources of food... possibly on of them. They draw lots to determine who this is. Tensions rise as the loser refuses to sacrifice himself for the group. As they corner him, he accidentally kills one of them.
Outside the collapse, Batman looks for a way in. He is faced with corpses, deadly debris and escaped animals from a private zoo. Batman walks in on the survivors announcing their rescue but finds one of them lying dead. As it turns out, his acquaintance Ralf Jones was killed a week before.
Batman enters a fit of rage from the frustration and devastation the earthquake has caused.
