For generations, the threat of nuclear attack was always in the corner of their minds. Millions of elementary school students and teens were taught that “the flash means act fast. Duck and cover!” But what happens AFTER the blast?
The year is 1955, and teenager Del Reeves dreams of ditching town life for a life in movies beyond projecting them at the local drive-in. But when Cold War nightmares become a reality, Del discovers that the film genres he’d grown up watching are more real than he could have ever imagined. When a sudden nuclear exchange obliterates the U.S., only the children who hid under their school desks are spared. These teens now find themselves the lone survivors in a strange and wild new ’50’s America.
