The Postman
(1997)

The Postman successfully challenges Bethlehem for the leadership and both he and Ford decide to spare Bethlehem's life, however Bethlehem attempts to kill The Postman and is killed by another Holnist soldier who surrenders afterwards.

The film ends with The Postman and Abby's daughter, Hope, unveiling a memorial to her father - he did not survive to see the creation of the utopic St. Rose. However thanks to his legacy, by his daughter's time a fair amount of civilisation has been restored.
