Are you prepared for the end of civilization? Comedy team Diani & Devine are not. Not remotely. So when all power and communication systems mysteriously shut off, the unprepared couple pack up their things and hit the road in search of a safe haven to wait out the possible extinction event. Accompanied by their trusty dog Watson and their miserable cat Mrs. Peel, the duo must struggle against the mundane realities of the collapse of civilisation while retaining their decency and rationality as the rest of humanity starts getting really, really weird.

You may remember we screened the brilliant comedy The Selling some years back, now the team behind that return with a satirical, clever and thoroughly enjoyable journey through the breakdown of civilisation.  Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine are an award-winning comedy duo who have become favourites at comedy clubs and festivals all across America, through web series, novels and now films.  Prepare for a sublime, absurd and surprisingly charming post-apocalyptic comedy road movie romance.
