Z for Zachariah

After the end of the world she thought she was alone. She was wrong.


Z for Zachariah
In the wake of a disaster that wipes out most of civilization, a young woman survives on her own, fearing she may actually be the proverbial last woman on earth, until she discovers the most astonishing sight of her life: another human being. A distraught scientist, he's nearly been driven mad by radiation exposure and his desperate search for others. A fragile, imperative strand of trust connects them. But when a stranger enters the valley, their precarious bond begins to unravel.

98 minutes.
Parental Guidance 10-12.
