Apocalyptic love story
The end is nigh, declares the newspaper headline. Peter continues to sip on coffee, morose and alone in his favourite café. He is content to watch the apocalypse rage on outside with earthquakes, exploding stars, and a giant komodo dragon tearing through the world around him. That is, until his ex-girlfriend Rachel bursts in, breathless and bloodstained.
Trapped in each other’s unexpected company, with nowhere to go and nothing to lose, Peter and Rachel begin to rummage through their history to find where they went wrong. Together they find cold coffee, greeting cards, Chinese food, and answers they never expected. Together, they face the end.
