The bunker is an oasis in Hell. Most readers have lost all hope that anything good will happen for the boy and the man. I think plausible looses its meaning when there is no future. The bunker changes nothing about the world in its last gasps of life. The bunker is there and it offers some respite and dignity for the father and son: that is enough for most readers to accept.
