As an adult in my mid 20s, growing up in a generation that has never NOT been at war, this was really terrifying. Grisly, and the realism of the situation was chilling. I agree with a previous commentator - this should be shown in schools.
Don't know if it's realistic that a pregnant woman somehow shows zero signs of radiation poisoning, drinks radiated water eats raw contaminated meat, and somehow gives birth and raises a child alone in nuclear winter all for the sake of having some sort of story. Pretty dumb imo.
Decent. Pretty grim but the realism is taken away when a pregnant woman somehow survives radiation, drinking contaminated water, eating raw contaminated food, and somehow giving birth and raising a child with no good in winter...slone.akk
Nightmare fuel, in the most real-world way possible.
