The Day of the Triffids

Classic sci-fi fantasy adventure, based on John Wyndham's novel, about the invasion of the planet by deadly plants. A meteor shower blinds the most of the Earth's population and covers the planet with strange seeds, which grow into huge plant-like creatures that embark on a seemingly unstoppable cycle of destruction. But a small band of people, unaffected by the meteors, decide to fight back.
