World Gone Wild (1988) Plot Summary
In the year 2087, the world has been destroyed by nuclear war. There is very little water on earth, and it is the most valuable resource. A lonely hippie commune called Lost Wells has still survived in the middle of the desert, and a cult of raiders attempt to take control of their water.
The people inhabiting Lost Wells, mostly hippies, aren’t powerful enough to fight against the cult, so they hire a gun-for-hire to come in and protect them. The mercenary comes in (played by Michael Pare) and falls in love with a local schoolteacher (played by Catherine Mary Stewart).
