A strange new virus has appeared, which only attacks strains of grasses such as wheat and rice, and the world is descending into famine and chaos. Architect John Custance, along with his family and friends, is making his way from London to his brother's farm in Scotland, where hopefully, there will be food and safety for all of them. Along the way, they encounter hostile soldiers, biker gangs, and all manner of people who are all too willing to take advantage of travelers for a mouthful of food. Written by

Being Lynne Frederick's first film, it was also her first time away from home. Frederick's mother, Iris, personally asked her daughters older co-star, Wendy Richard, to look over fifteen year old Lynne. In her autobiography, Richard recalled that watching over Lynne was an arduous experience due to Lynne's "headstrong personality". See more »
Cornel Wilde who was acclaimed for Beach Red ran short with No Blade Of Grass where he is only behind the camera. The film stars Jean Wallace the real life Mrs. Wilde and Nigel Davenport as her screen husband.
Davenport is a scientist and mankind seems to have come to an end. There's a virus probably developed by us that is killing all the grass and not just grass. Wheat, oats, rice, those things that are animal fodder is also dying. With that government is breaking down as people are starving.
We also find out what a luxury urban centers can be. More authoritarian governments are just killing off urban centers to save the rest. The raisers of food are always the backbone of any society.
Davenport and Wallace and their family leave London to try and make for farm country and his brother's farm. Along the way society breaks down more and more as Davenport by virtue of his charisma attracts a small following. One has to wonder is this how tribes developed as humankind was beginning its evolutionary rise.
It's a sincerely made and cause driven project, a bit heavy handed at times. But the message is clear about preserving our environment and our food growing capacities.
