The Postman 1997It is 2013. War has crippled the Earth. Technology has been erased. Our only hope is an unlikely hero.
Post-apocalyptic America. What begins as a con game becomes one man's quest to rebuild civilization by resuming postal service.
Story: In the year 2013 civilization has all but destroyed itself. After a war that decimated the government and most of the population of the United States (possibly the world) people struggle to survive against starvation and rogue groups of armed men. One such group is called the Holnists. This group is bigger than any other and their leader, General Bethlehem, has delusions of ruling the country. A drifter is captured by the group and forced to join. He escapes at the first chance and happens on a mail jeep with a skeleton in it. The skeleton is wearing a postal uniform and the drifter takes it to keep him warm. He also finds a mailbag and starts conning people with old letters. The hope he sees in the people he delivers to changes his plans and he decides that he must help bring the Holnists down.
Did you know: One of the films playing on the movie screen at the Army Camp is "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon".
