Synopsis

Something terrible has happened, leading to the complete collapse of civilisation. What that terrible thing was we never find out, and it doesn't matter as we travel through the wreck of America with a man and his son who have done well to survive and keep surviving. Most films set after an apocalyptic event are either sci-fi adventures or horror movies, but this powerful and disturbing film isn't really either - although it certainly has its terrifying moments. It's more about the psychology of the survivors - and the philosophical questions raised by simply staying alive.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
