This is a part of the personal project I'm working on. A Pail of Air, visualization of an Science Fiction Short story by Fritz Leiber.  

Home is where you can sleep without dying. This is where the protagonist's family call home.

The family hangs a pail of liquid oxygen above the fire, so it evaporate and become the precious, breathable O2. The family need to refill the pail with liquid oxygen every once in a while. The oxygen feeds the flame to burn, and the flame heats the pail for oxygen. If one of them run out, it will spell doom for all of them.

In the original short story, the room is concealed, but I figure they will die from carbon monoxide poisoning, so I give them some windows.

The world of A Pail of Air -- Earth had deviated form it original orbit, flying away from it's precious sun. Without the sun, photosynthesis stops, mass panic occur, the apocalypse had come.  

Years later, the temperature drops below -200°C. Most part of the world had become nothing but darkness and bitter cold air. With temperature this low, oxygen starts to liquify, the survivors will have to dig up a pail of liquid air, heat it up for them to breath.  

The quake destroyed most underground pipelines. With no ionosphere, contacting with radio or any wireless method is impossible. The protagonist and his family lives in a obscured world far away from civilization, yet they strive to survive.
