While most post-apocalyptic tales employ themes of ecological devastation, this BBC production goes in another direction. The majority of the world has been blinded, and the few people still alive must try to protect everyone from the aggressive and deadly plants known as "triffids." The story follows Bill and Josella as they reconcile themselves to their new lives in this world. Like most BBC productions, this one employs sound effects, background music, and a full cast of voices. With no narration, the production relies heavily on the tone and emotion of the characters as well as accurate and well-executed sound effects. Of course, the BBC impressively delivers.
