After a nuclear holocaust, a black miner looks for survivors in deserted New York. He finds a young white woman, and their relationship is made difficult because of the differences in color. A third person is found, a white sailor, and the growing tension between the three of them begins to erupt.

Interesting the scenes of a entirely deserted and silent New York. Belafonte sings just one calypso song, and the threesome act well together.
Released on May, 1959
