[T]he most realistic depiction of nuclear war ever created for family consumption, they told us. No, scratch that: ABC hyped that, preying on our anxieties...

Product Description:

Steve Guttenberg and Jason Robards star in this Emmy Award-winning made-for-TV movie about the aftermath of a total global thermonuclear war. Taking place in Lawrence, Kansas, THE DAY AFTER is a bleak look at the effects such a war would have on humanity by using the inhabitants of this small town as a microcosm of the world. Decidedly grim, Nicholas Meyer's film is graphic and disturbing, one that polarized an entire generation's attitude towards nuclear war.

Plot Synopsis:

Made-for-tv-movie revolving around a nuclear catastrophe befalling Lawrence, Kansas, and the town's survivors struggling to make sense of the splintered, toxic world they've inherited.


Production Notes:

  • TV film won 12 Emmy Award nominations, fired up anti-nuclear peace groups and disturbed its network's shareholders.
