Comments: A virus is killing all grass-like plants (e.g. wheat & rice) in the Far East. It's believed that this scourge will be destroyed before reaching Western Europe, or it ruins the food chain. However, as the crisis worsens and arrives in the West, the British government fears the worst. An insider warns a friend. He takes his family and heads north to his brother's farm. Will they make it?
This apocalyptic film has an obvious message about contemporary levels of pollution. It does a good job presenting the dynamics of a group of strangers in stressful time.
