Summary
A war no one fully understands has devastated the planet with radioactive fallout from massive cobalt bombing. Melbourne, Australia is the only area whose citizens have not yet succumbed to the contamination. But there isn't much time left, a few months, maybe more -- and the citizens of Melbourne must decide how they will live the remaining weeks of their lives, and how they will face a hopeless future
Summary
Following a nuclear war in the Northern Hemisphere, the inhabitants of a small Australian community await the inevitable after-effects of the bombs to reach them
