Blast from the Past

Adam and Eve from New Line




Calvin Webber was a paranoid scientist in Los Angeles who built a bomb shelter for his family, and in 1962 during the Cuba Missle Crisis, an airplane smashed their house causing Calvin to fear it was a nuclear bomb. He closed the doors to his shelter and trapped the family underground for 35 years. Adam was born and raised in the shelter, with Dad's Jackie Gleason re-runs on TV and Perry Como records. In 1997, he decided to open the shelter, meets Eve, and embarks on a series of adventures.
