All of a sudden, the main characters’ world, never-changing, tedious and painfully familiar, starts to go crazy when it is announced that a gigantic asteroid is on a collision course with Earth. The end of the world is near. The Apocalypse is coming. And then, the moment of truth arrives: it’s time to fulfill your innermost wishes. It’s now or never. It’s too late to retreat. And at that instant, our heroes, surprised at their own decisions, start a mad dance on the very brink of the abyss. No one can stop them now because there’s literally no tomorrow. Winter will certainly never come, in any case. However, someone might still have a chance.
