With his world already feeling like it had ended a few months earlier with the death of his wife, Patrick Wheeler wants nothing more than to sit alone and honour her memory as the actual end of the world approaches, but a stranded stranger (who, herself, wants nothing more than to get home to her husband) soon has him reluctantly changing his plans, whilst his family and friends take their own personal journeys towards oblivion, in McKellar’s affecting, nuanced, metaphor-laden feature directorial debut.
