In the 23rd century, humanity lives a decadent hedonistic life, sealed away from the tainted earth in the beautiful City of Domes.

The movie won an Oscar for Best Special Effects. It was followed in 1977 by a TV series starring Gregory Harrison and Heather Menzies, searching for Sanctuary in the ruins of America. A pilot and thirteen expensive episodes were screened before cancellation.
