Doctor Meyer (Stuart Gillard) has developed an all powerful virus, but only too late does he learn that the army actually plans to use it in warfare, and when he does, he gets thrown into the loonie bin, and the virus is stolen ... and later released in an accident, killing before long humankind as such.

All humankind?

Nope, the crew of an international research facility in the antarctica survives the ordeal because the virus cannot survive in the cold. But surviving a bacteriological attack does not save these humans yet, because both Washington and Moscow have activated their automatic nuclear defense systems before being depopulized by the virus, and Antarctica's resident scientist Yoshizumi (Masao Kusakari) just happens to know an earthquake caused by deep sea drilling will shake Washington in a month or so, an earthquake that will set off the defense system. Now that would only be half as bad wouldn't Moscow have aimed some nuclear warheads at the Antarctic research station ...

Yoshizumi and all-American hero Carter (Bo Svenson) are supplied with a newly developed antivirus to survive the virus, then they travel to Washington. When they arrive, the earth is already shattering, and Carter dies under the debris, but Yoshizumi makes it to the main computer of the defense system - moments too late though, and everything goes up in nuclear mushrooms. Yoshizumi survives though in the bunker the main computer was at, then he walks all the way back to Antarctica to reunite with the woman he loves (Olivia Hussey), who was fortunately among the people who were evacuated from the research station before the big bang ...


This was supposed to be a very ambitious film about the end of the world with Cold War undercurrents and a pacifist message - but it has turned out to be an overly convoluted disaster movie that has little new to add to the topic and is not exactly original concerning its message, either. Plus due to the film's many narrative threads, one repeatedly loses sight of the (feeble) main plot, which also affects the basic tension of the film. Not really worth your while.
