The horrors of nuclear holocaust are illustrated here by the effect they have on the lives of everyday Americans in the Midwest. While surgeon Dr Russell Oakes waits for news of reconciliation between world leaders, farmer Jim Dahlberg is preparing for his daughter's wedding and Alison Ransom is waiting to give birth to her first child. None of these people are prepared for the devastation that is about to wreck their lives.
