Post apocalyptic story that follows a young couple named John and Miranda. We know that there was an apocalypse from the stock footage of riots interspersed with views of a nuclear power plant which plays during the opening credits. John is a retro hippie looking dude with a beard and dirty, ragged clothing. Miranda is an attractive, lean blonde who dresses like a sexy jungle girl. She sort of looks like a pretty, non-albino version of Anne Heche. They also have a dog. They live in the remnants of an old stone house located in a park. It's basically just two walls, it doesn't even have a roof. I can't help but wonder what they did when it rained.
They spend their time listening to John read poetry and wax nostalgic for the old days. Miranda has no memory of the world before "the fall" as John calls it. We learn that Miranda is a mutant. What this entails I have no idea, because she looks perfectly normal. We are told that Miranda was once purple, but it went away. Sometimes they have to stave off attacks by vandals mutants. These are just scruffy guys in ragged clothing. The film can't seem to make up it's mind whether they are vandals or mutants. The main characters use the two terms as if they are interchangeable.
One day when John and Miranda are out walking and playing fetch with the dog, it runs away. Upon returning home they encounter a soldier named Simon. They aren't to happy with Simon's presence, but he has a rifle. He is cooking a piece of meat over a fire. The piece of meat looks to be only slightly bigger than a chicken. Yep, it's supposedly the dog. Simon starts demanding salt for his meat. Which John just happens to have laying around. The salt is really some kind of drug that knocks out Simon. Simon awakens the next day bound with rope. John opts to untie Simon rather than kill him. They then become allies of a sort. Now John and Simon can both bore Miranda with stories of the old world.
We learn that there was a financial meltdown in 1986, and some kind of nuclear accidents or something. John bemoans the loss of his brand new 1986 Honda Civic. We also learn that John's father was a scientist who was involved in cloning research.
The rest of the film is just lots of talking leading up to a final confrontation with the mutants vandals. John is wounded. John's clone shows up and rescues Miranda before himself being killed. The film ends with the three main characters back at the old stone house and Miranda reading poetry.
This is an extremely low budget affair, shot with a camcorder in the local park. Besides the three main characters, there are about a dozen extras as mutants vandals. The only actually good thing about this is Nancy Cser, who played Miranda. She looks might fine in her jungle girl outfit and even has a brief skinny dipping scene. She was also in the 80s Canadian soft core skin flick " Perfect Timing", which I highly recommend.engstfeld
