[Dog barking]


...the creation

of the atomic bomb...


[Inhales sharply]


...enough is enough.

Otherwise, the vicious cycle

will continue.

And tragically, we,

the adults of this generation...

[Voice trails off]

...the price tag will be human life.


...society, in all its complacency,

is willing to accept the notion

that its children

are tomorrow's martyrs.

[Thunder rumbles]

Campus operator.

Hi, this is Cari Lumis.

Could you give me the number

to the campus clinic, please?

I have an emergency.

Please hold.

[Cellphone ringing]


No, honey.

This is your father.

Aw, Dad.

Dad, there's something wrong.

Cari, you're sick.

No, Dad.

Dad, it's more than that.

My skin, it...

It's drying up,

and you have unexplained sores.

How did you know?

Sweetie, you have...

You have a family-related illness.

It's hereditary.

Dad, you never said anything

about this.

Dad, it's bad.

I think I need a doctor.

We have the remedy here.

So you must come home, and

you must come home immediately.

Okay. Okay. It hurts.

Cari, we have the cure.

You just come home now.

But make it quick.


It's gonna be all right, Maggie.

Gonna be all right.


I'm thirsty.

You can have my rations.

No. I need water.

There's little left.


I'll check with Pa.

Pa, can Maggie have

my water rations?



that boy in the field...

he was Ben Wheeler's son, Simon.

[Inhales deeply]


That boy was crazy.

Lack of food and water, no doubt.

What happened to him, Pa?

[Thunder rumbles]

My God.



Pa, it looks like our prayers
