The story focuses on two families from Sheffield, beginning nearly three months before the attack, which happens on Thursday, 26 May; the year is unspecified, but, relative to 1984, the closest years in which 26 May fell on a Thursday are 1983 and 1988. We watch their lifestyle and their reactions, first as fighting erupts and escalates, then as the UK places itself on a war footing, and eventually as strategic bombing commences. We then follow family members as they face, and sometimes die of, the medical, economic, social, and environmental consequences of a nuclear war. The film concludes thirteen years after the attack, as civilization rebuilds to a stage like the early Industrial Era. Both the plot and the atmosphere of the film are extremely bleak.
