After being trapped for days in a cave-in, Ralph (Harry Belafonte) digs himself out, only to find that civilization has been destroyed by nuclear armageddon. He befriends a survivor named Sarah (Inger Stevens), but when the pair meets Benson (Mel Ferrer), a white racist for whom the possibility of coexistence is still unthinkable, the trio becomes a microcosm of the fears and prejudices that brought the world to this terrible moment. One of the riskier and socially daring examples of 1950s dystopian sci-fi. (95 min.)
