synopsis
A sequel of sorts to H.-G. Wells’ War of the Worlds, which is treated here as a prophetic vision heralding the all-out, destructive Martian attack of 1978. A handful of scientists battle hordes of cannibals and anarchists roaming a devastated Earth, while trying to rebuild its civilization. In the end, souls travel inward through the Solar System to end up one with the Sun - the true reason for the Martian invasion.
