Adapted from a 1947 pulp novel by Stuart Cloete about the last two people on earth and their pack of hunting dogs, The Blast imagines a new American apocalypse, and the children who inherit the earth.

A blood-soaked fairytale, a theatrical monstrosity, a wild new world born howling in a bright atomic blast.
