* AliensInCardiff: What makes the film so effective is its setting in the American heartland, underscoring the face that there is nowhere to run with nuclear war.

The film takes place in and around Kansas City, Missouri and Lawrence, Kansas, which are in the geographic center of the United States. At first, the film follows the daily lives of a number of locals; a Kansas City physician (Dr. Russell Oakes) and his wife (Helen Oakes), a University of Kansas professor (Joe Huxley), one of the students there (Stephen Klein), a family of farmers from Harrisonville, Missouri (the Dahlbergs), and a soldier (Billy [=McCoy=]) stationed at Whiteman Air Force Base, home to a number of [[PeaceThroughSuperiorFirepower Minuteman II missile silos]].

%% ATTENTION: Do not add claims that this work is "Lighter and Softer" in relation to Threads. That trope is ONLY for works that are retooled to become more "family friendly" later in their run, or in remakes. For "Lighter and Softer" to apply here, Threads would have had to be made first, and The Day After later, instead of the other way around.
