This 1975 film directed by Daniel Bourla and starring Robert Strauss is focused upon the sole survivor of a nuclear holocaust. It is shot in black and white in order to emphasize the starkness of his condition as he wanders through a bleak landscape with nothing but his own thoughts for company. The movie is an examination of what it means to be human and how those who are in impossible situations cope with their despair. For Noah, the only solution that he can muster is to begin creating imaginary companions for himself. At first, he has only one friend to keep him company. In time, he builds a community and then an entire civilization in his mind based on what he knows of history and his own hopes and fears.

The name Noah is an allusion to the Biblical figure who, along with his family, survived an all-encompassing flood and repopulated the world. Ultimately, this Noah must come to grips with the fact that he is truly and utterly alone, realizing in the process the scope of the human imagination. He must come to understand just how far his creativity can take him--and how short it will fall.
