Goodbye World

Synopsis: James and Lily, estranged from society, live off the grid, raising their young daughter in a cocoon of comfort and sustainability. When a mysterious mass text ripples its way across the country, triggering a crippling, apocalyptic cyber attack, their home transitions from sheltered modern oasis to a fortress for the estranged old friends that show up at their door for protection and community. The unexpected reunion--abundant with revelry and remembrances, generously enhanced by organic wine and weed--is quickly undermined by the slights of the past, the spark of lingering flirtations and the threat of a locally grown new world order. Balancing tense confrontations with slivers of levity, director Denis Henry Hennelly pinpoints a future where ideology explodes into action in every area.

How about, "Hey, Nick,

sorry I froze you out of that

company you founded with Lily."

That wasn't a very

friendly thing to do.

He wanted to sell our

user's private information

without their...

I know. Trust me, I know.

I'm just saying this

would go a lot better

if we play nice tonight.

We have all weekend to

talk about the house.



You forgot something.

Hey, hey!

Jesus. You all right?


Someone just blew up

a truck on the 405.

No shit. Really?

Yeah. People are freaking out.

This pump's dead.


Over here.

The pump's dead.

We should go.

No, no, no, no.

Come here. Come here,

you got to see this.

We're already late.

- No, no, no, no. Quick.

- Real quick. Come on.

Come on.

You're going to love it.

I can't believe they're

still doing this.

What? Selling vegetables?


Just literally a box of

cash sitting on a table

by the side of the road.


So, what's to stop

me from taking it?

The Ten Commandments.

I mean in the real world.

Just kidding.

No, no, no. Thou shall not

turn on their cell phone.

Well, you need to call them

to let them know

we're running late.

There's no service here, is there?

Hey, do you have any cash?

We should bring cucumber.

Lily loves cucumbers.

Well, then I'm sure she has some.

Let's go.

You stole that?

I left my sunglasses.

That's a $200 cucumber.

It'll be worth it, I promise.

Hope so, because it certainly

seems important to you

to impress your ex-girlfriend.

It's not like that.

It's an ice-breaker.

She has a really immature

sense of humour, trust me.

Ladies and gentlemen, this

is your captain speaking.

There are some security

concerns right now

at the San Francisco Airport,

so we'll be making an early

landing in Las Vegas.

Once we're on the ground our
