About a quarter of the way into the film, there is a nuclear explosion. The characters feel the blast wave and see ash raining from the sky. The bombing is discussed on television. There is a strong sense of foreboding leading up to the event

Soldiers shoot through the wall of a barn, putting children in danger, and the children are led out at gunpoint. Men are shown with bullet holes in their heads. A boy is shot and injured, dying as his friends watch, with blood visible. Lots of misc. shooting. A girl uses a handgun to shoot people who are pursuing them.
