The sun has set and may never rise again. The dark hangs over the cities and suburbs and countryside of a nation, and the government is ill-equipped to save the day. Three reporters in the field and an anchorman are doing their best to shed some light on the situation, but as the mystery deepens with the darkness, they begin to lose their grip, and the nakedly personal breaks through their practiced personas. There is a witness: can he tell us what happened?
A witty, mournful and slyly absurd meditation on apocalypse in a world only a hair’s breadth from our own. (summerworks.ca)
