Welcome to the future.
Biological wars have all but wiped out life on Earth. Los Angeles is a ghost town, where the wind rushes through the streets. This is also where Robert Neville (Charlton Heston) roams the deserted neighborhoods during the day, looking for supplies. He does take care to find a safe hiding place before sunset, because that's when the other "townspeople" show up. These albino-like mutants, The Family, are the result of the diseases that plague the planet. After meeting Lisa (Rosalind Cash), also an unaffected survivor, Neville puts aside his pure survival instincts to help her. After all, she is the guardian of a pair of healthy children, the last hope for survival of the human race.

'The Omega man' is a compelling and poignant adaptation of Richard Matheson's novel 'I Am Legend' (1954), the chronicle of a possible future for humanity.
