Grieving from the recent death of his mother, Paulo has travelled from Portugal to Iceland, a trip they were supposed to do together. While there, news the world has been waiting for finally arrives. Earth will cease to exist in a matter of days. With only these last few days left and unable to get home he finds himself stranded in a small village where he spends his days wandering a delicate foreign land and encountering the people he will spend his final days with. Experiencing intimate and brief moments, allowing him these few last human connections. A quiet, contemplative humanist story set in Iceland. Exploring themes of grief, death, and how in the end human connections allow us to forgive and accept.

Programmer Notes:

Beautiful, heartbreaking, poignant. I was on the edge of tears throughout the entire movie. Pacing is perfect, beautiful cinematography and setting. Loved it.
