A struggling comedy duo discovers that surviving the apocalypse is almost as difficult as surviving in Hollywood. When power and communication mysteriously shut off, Gabe Diani and Etta Devine pack up their troubles and hit the road with their trusty dog, Watson, and their miserable cat Mrs. Peel in search of a safe haven to wait out the possible extinction event. It’s like one of those old Bob Hope and Bing Crosby “Road to…” movies meets Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road,” but funnier.

What People Are Saying

"Bad times make for good, subversive comedy, which partly explains why this gleefully absurdist, end-of-the-world, road movie romance works so very, very well on so many levels. The rest of the film’s sneaky, borderline low-key genius is due to the fact that Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine are that rarest of comedy commodities: a perfect team." -Austin Chronicle

"Envision an alt.universe Hope and Crosby road movie, add a pinch of Six-String Samurai and a momentary bit of inspired Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior lunacy, and underpin it all with the sublime writing chops of Mike Nichols and Elaine May – yes, it’s true, the chemistry is that good" - Austin Chronicle

"polished, thick-skinned, kind-hearted, and effortlessly funny." - ScreenAnarchy
