Directed by Lynne Littman | 1983

With Jane Alexander, William Devane, Rossie Harris

An ordinary American family survives a nuclear war but then must figure out how to press on in the face of unimaginable horror in Lynne Littman’s quietly shattering study of tragedy and resilience. The Oscar-nominated performance by Jane Alexander as the brave but struggling mother sets the tone—at once rigorously unsentimental yet unbearably moving—for this intimate study of everyday people confronting the void.
