Synopsis
After a mysterious nuclear war, most of the world has been wiped out save for Australia. A US submarine, commandeered by Peck, surfaces only to be shocked by the apocalypse. With a black radioactive crowd fast approaching the only surviving continent, the survivors make serious introspection into their lives as they await their fates.
