In this animated film, an elderly English couple experience World War III. Jim and Hilda Bloggs prepare for the coming nuclear war, a result of deteriorating conditions in the Soviet-Afghan War. Their romanticized memories of World War II and their faith in government preparations are in stark contrast to the devastating nuclear fallout that leave them in despair.
