A virus that wipes out wheat and rice decimates Asia, causing riots, famine, and death. Despite government assurances that Europe is safe and a counter-virus is in production, disaster strikes, and Britain rapidly descends into chaos. In the middle of the turmoil, John Custance (Nigel Davenport) and his family abandon London to seek sanctuary at his brother’s farm. But their journey takes them across lawless terrain, and their humanity is put to the test…

Cornel Wilde, UK 1970, 15, 96mins
