A white collar family and a blue collar one are listening to War of the Worlds in 1939 in neighboring apartments. More
It's October 31st, 1939, and Orson Welles' "War of the Worlds" is being broadcast over the radio world. The Ables, people of the land type, in one apartment are listening to the show and believe its absolutely true. The Odums, white collar do-betters, are in the next apartment and think the whole thing is a gas. The Ables are preparing for escape, and the Odums are getting annoyed at each other's living habits. Then the Ables come over to help the Odums flee, and their paranoia gradually infects the white collar types, especially when the lights blackout. Both blue and white are afraid to their cores and flee into the night.
