Summary
"Centres around a scientist called Zac who wakes one morning to discover he is alone in the world. The global top-secret energy project (Operation Flashlight) which he has been working on for a year, has changed the world. Humanity seems to have been wiped out. Zac begins a frantic search for other survivors. At the same time he has the chance to live out his fantasies. In a world where excess and wealth have no meaning, he switches from dwelling to dwelling and vehicle to vehicle. He soon realises the emptiness and loneliness of his nightmare situation. "I have been condemmed to live" he says. The discovery of two survivors, first a woman and then a man sets the scene for a critical struggle for survival and adds an intriguing spiritual and emotional dimension to the film"--Container
