Plot Outline:
Atomic War Bride
In Atomic War Bride (AKA the Yugoslavian film Rat), John and Maria are preparing for marriage when war is declared. John is forced into military service and Maria and family become refugees after an aerial attack. When John is accidentally trapped in a bomb shelter while on patrol, he is reunited with Maria and his townspeople. As ominous warnings about the government’s use of nuclear weapons fill the shelter’s video screens, John leads a revolt amongst the people. All they want is peace. A government crackdown on dissenters means John is charged with treason. It is up to the Army to find and kill John, even as the enemy’s bombs grow ever closer.

A state policeman (Seamon Glass) sets up a roadblock on a stretch of highway in the middle of the night and begins stopping motorists with a warning that nuclear missiles are on their way. Caught between disbelief and panic, this motley assembly — a truck driver, a hitchhiker, crooks on the run and vacationers — must now find a way to survive the blast. This vintage sci-fi thriller’s contemplation of annihilation remains chillingly effective.
