After a top-secret experiment misfires, a scientist may be the only man left alive in the world. The Quiet Earth centres around a scientist called Zac (Bruno Lawrence) who wakes one morning to discover he is alone in the world. The global top-secret energy project (Operation Flashlight) which he has been working on for a year, has changed the world. Humanity seems to have been wiped out.
