There was a BBC made-for-tv movie in 1984, and a big screen adaption is planned for 2015. The first trailer can be viewed [[https://youtu.be/5k5tlNHUCj0 here]], but it suggests a very loose adaptation.

''Z For Zachariah'' is a 1975 novel by Robert C. O'Brien (the same author who wrote ''Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh'', later made into ''TheSecretOfNIMH'' by Creator/DonBluth). It's a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] novel for young adults, following sixteen-year-old Ann Burden, who believes she's the only survivor of a nuclear war that seems to have wiped out the rest of the world. For a largely [[HandWave unexplained reason]], the valley in which she lives seems to have escaped the nuclear fallout, meaning she's able to make it on her own.

A year after the war, another person, a man named John Loomis, finds her valley. He's survived thanks to [[TechnoBabble a suit]] he designed before the war, a prototype of a radiation suit that had been planned to be mass-produced before the war interrupted it. He gives himself radiation sickness by bathing in a contaminated stream, leaving Ann to take care of him. At first he seems okay, but as he gets better he becomes more and more controlling and downright creepy, culminating in an attempt to rape Ann.

Being ufamiliar with the valley, he is unaware that there are two streams and when he returns to take his bath, he does not realise that he actually come to the second (contaminated) stream.
