Two air force officers are stuck in the middle of the mushroom cloud that signals the start of World War III. The film advances several years: there aren't many survivors in the desert, so the two officers try to hike to Albany, NY, which has mysteriously survived the armageddon. On the way, they encounter the typical remainders of the fallout: giant cockroaches, nuclear-enhanced weather, and the occasional destitute survivor.
The film was moved back over a year from its original release date due to production and release problems. Shot in DeLuxe color.
