In a post-nuclear World, racecar-gladiator Flash (Michael Sopikow) gets the job of finding the only fertile woman worldwide in bombed-out New York & get her out of their for the future of the human race. To help him (& to control him of course) the American president (Edmund Purdom), has him accompanied by 2 crooks, Bronx (Paolo Maria Scalondro) & Ratchet (Romano Puppo), who ably help him to get into New York, which is guarded by the evil Eurakian army (lead by Anna Kanakis).

Once there, they not only have to fight the Eurakians, though, but also degenerates, mutants & of course rats, but manage to free both Kirk (Louis Ecclesia), a dwarf, & beautiful Akaya (Valentine Monnier), who Flash promptly falls in love with. However, soon Flash, Akaya & Bronx are caught by the Eurakians & Flash can only buy some time when he convinces their leader that 'Akaya is the last fertile woman - & it's just time enough for Ratchet & Kirk to device a plan to save them, even if Bronx has to die in the process.

Once having shaken the Eurakian warriors of their trail though, our heroes are by no way safe, as they are soon picked up by Big Ape (George Eastman) & his mutant tribe, & though Big Ape does offer them hospitality after some initial fights, it soon becomes clear he has an agenda of his own, as he wants the fertile woman (who's yet to be found) for himself to live on through his off-spring.

Finally, Kirk leads Flash, Ratchet, Akaya & Big Ape to the woman, Melissa, who has been in a coma ever since the desaster that started the mutations in the first place & is thus uninfected, & our group even devices a plan to escape together, as they build an armoured car to break through the Eurakian defenses, but in the end most of them are killed, Kirk when he lures the Eurakian guards away from our heroes' hide-out, Big Ape when he protects Melissa's life with his body, for after a rape she now carries his child, Akaya is shot by Ratchet, while Ratchet, who turns out to be an evil android from the American government, is put off-line by Flash.

Flash on the other hand, is disillusioned even more than he was before the affair, but nevertheless he has chosen to board a spaceship to another planet to - with Melissa & a handful of other chosen ones - start the human race anew.


For some reason, in the early 80's - faced with a changing market & the advent of home video - Italian film production companies by & large lost faith in creating original products & seemed content to base their movies on popular American successes (e.g. Escape from New York - which this movie very obviously was based on - or Conan the Barbarian, Star Wars, Alien, Terminator, Mad Max 2: Road Warrior, ...), remade on a shoestring budget. Understandably, many directors - some of them had been in the business 10 to 20 years & did work on some decent films with decent cast - felt less than flattered about being reduced to shoot a film after a blueprint without even having enough money let alone a decent cast to do just that. The lack of conviction for the product often becomes plainly visible in these movies - as it does in this one -, & overall, yes, the movies are rather bad. At the same time though, some - & 2019: Dopo la caduta di New York is one of them - manage to be entertaining in a trashy way.
