Sunset Rising (Description):
2024: The world is about to be devastated by a global nuclear war and a
Hitler-like madman has seized control of the only shelter from the
bombs. So when a group of civilians come to the Bio-Dome seeking refuge
from the nuclear storm, they are forced to make a deal with the devil;
