These Final Hours

Synopsis: It's the last day on earth, twelve hours before a cataclysmic event will end life as we know it. James makes his way across a lawless and chaotic city to the party to end all parties. Along the way, he somewhat reluctantly saves the life of a little girl named Rose who is desperately searching for her father. Stuck with the unexpected burden of responsibility, James is forced to come to terms with what really matters in life as the final hours tick away.

What? What?

I want my dad.

Listen! It's just not safe here!

Get in the van!

Please. Please.


They said

they'd help me find Dad,

but they... they went

a different way.

They said

it was a short cut.

He's 42.

He's got black hair.

- I need some water.

- He was looking for some petrol.

- Maybe you've seen him.

- Shush! Can you just...

Is there any water?

There's this.

You shouldn't drink and drive.

It's dangerous.

- Where do you live?

- Dad burnt our house down.

He said he didn't want anyone

breaking in and living there.

Oh, f*ck.

Said the house memories were

our memories, no-one else's.

- So he set it on fire.

- Well...

Where'd you

last see your dad?

When we ran out of petrol

on the way to Aunty Janice's.

Told me to hide

while he found some more.

No, there's gotta be somewhere

I can leave ya.

- Everyone's at Aunty Janice's.

- Where's that?

In Roleystone.

No, no, no, no, no.

Maybe Dad's back at the car,

looking for me.

In Malaga.



You know

where the ice rink is?



Shut up!

They're shooting again.



Central America.


10 hours, folks.


- Over.

- Dad!


- Dad!

- F*ck.

- He's not here.

- Dad!

- Dad!

- That's enough.

- Dad!

- Hey, it's enough.

He's not here.

He's not here.


Well, then...

he must be at Aunty Janice's.

He said if we ever got separated

that we should meet there.


This is what he looks like.

Where's your mum?

She died.

I've gotta get going.

Well... maybe you could

take me to my aunt's.

I've got hardly enough petrol

to get where I'm going.

Well, there'll be petrol

at my aunt's.

My sister lives near here.

You'll like her. She's nice.

She has three little girls.

You'll be safe there, alright?

Come on. We're going.
