growing wheat in the nearby fields and rebuilding the chateau. Soon they discover a band of people,living in train cars in a mountain tunnel, who are led by an insane fascist (Trintignant), who is killed quickly. The train people join the survivors at the chateau. As things seem to be going well,

helicopters from the new government arrive to take everyone to a 1984-style city. Three people escape the government relocation, one a pregnant young woman. The screenplay was adapted from the novel by Merle, who withdrew his name from the film's credits.
