Claustrophobic tension on an Earth struggling through a nuclear winter. One of the few survivors is given an opportunity to leave the scientific base where his has only one companion – a risky journey to a nearby space elevator. We follow him as he makes his space-suited journey across the irradiated grey wastelands, and the tension builds as he finds out more about the visitor who gave him the tip-off to make the journey.
