‘Z for Zachariah’ a Love Triangle In a Post-Apocalyptic Future

In a world devastated by a catastrophic nuclear event, a single idyllic valley remains spared from the radioactive fallout

In a world devastated by a catastrophic nuclear event, a single idyllic valley remains spared from the radioactive fallout. Here, a solitary figure, Ann Burden (Margot Robbie), thrives on the farm she once shared with her family, bolstered by her wits, hard work and indomitable faith.

Movie Z for Zachariah

Living on her own for some time, her fears that she may be the event’s only survivor prove unfounded when she encounters John Loomis (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a pragmatic scientist, turned refugee, searching for a safe haven. Forming a delicate if powerful bond, their budding relationship – and with it, the tenuous promise of a better life – begins to unravel when a stranger, the former mine worker, Caleb (Chris Pine), enters their world.

Featuring three of the film industry’s brightest talents, Z for Zachariah, stars Australian actress Margot Robbie (Focus) as Ann Burden, a woman whose faith in divine providence is put to the test by the two men who enter her life.
