I saw a film when I was very young.

There were a group of people who wake up at the start of the film, one of them woke from a drug induced coma of some kind.

Everyone in the world seems dead apart from them and they discover this is because the sun is reproducing and had emitted a load of deadly rays that only seemed to kill people conscious at the time.

The people in the film have a certain amount of time before this happens again.


This does sound very much like "The Quiet Earth" as @Valorum has said in a comment.

  • At the very start of the movie, the main protagonist in TQE wakes up from an attempt at overdosing with pills

  • The very few people who are around in the movie had similar experiences

  • The protagonist is a scientist who realises something is going on with the sun
