Plot – The movie illustrates nuclear war's consequences. In the first part of the film, in Lawrence citizens live their everyday life, until televisions transmit increasingly alarming news. The balance between great nations is come to a breaking point. People start to rush, the panic hits the men in the streets. USSR and America give the orders to kill population and nuclear missiles are launched from underground. Terrifying roars fill the screen. People remain initially paralyzed, then everyone disappears in a second, dissolved into ash. All around is destruction and ruin. The second part of the movie shows what will happen in Lawrence and in the rest of the world if a nuclear war would really start out. There would be a return of a "nuclear" Middle Ages, dead living processions, lootings, plague victims, murderers on the loose.
