Welcome to Iceland.

Thirty minutes,

we'll be reaching...

You know that you used all

your savings for this trip?


I really wanna

help out so...


Yeah, I just thought...

-Nope, nope, no!


-Oh, you didn't.

-I did.

It's in my mouth. It's in--

yup, yup, yup, yup!

So you think we're gonna

be able to find film?

We don't need to.

I brought a lot of film

before I came out here.

So we're okay.

Why won't you just let me

buy you that new camera?

I don't want a computer

autocorrecting everything.

I wanna capture

the moment.

You are a stubborn

son of a gun.

My dad would talk about

capturing the moment, okay?

Now I was never

very good at it.

Um, I mean sometimes i

kept a little piece of it.

It feels good because

you're capturing something

where everything is great.

There's nothing bad.

I mean, if there's an

imperfection, that's okay.

That's not bad.

this church was built

in the 18th century.

But man came here

long before it.

Fleeing the tyranny of

Harold the fairhair.

Harold the fairhair

of normandy.

Yeah, but later spread the

word of god to the healers.

What was life

like back then?

Well it was simple.

And the stories

were simple.

There's that mischievous

age of the warmhearted.

And the adventures of

inqua, the far traveler.

You heard about inqua?

-I have not.


Okay, okay.

And this is where early

parliament meetings were held.

This is

or long rock.

I think I just defiled the.

You-you did.

You defiled the.


Nothing I missed

about churches.

What was your

dad's place like?

It was plain.

White walls,

beige carpets.

Felt more like an

office building than...

But this.

Baby, wake up.


-Wake up!

Wake up, come on.

Let's go experience


It's getting late.

I'm hungry.

We can get some food.

I'm still on us time.

Well, there's only

one way out of that.

Get up.


It's so bright in here.

There's supposed to be

continental breakfast.

Wanna do caf?


Someone's asleep

at the wheel.

what time is it?

30, I think.


Well it's just...

It's empty.

Is it like a holiday or...

I don't know. Maybe some

event or something.

Like the solstice.

That's a

celebration, right?

The summer solstice.




I mean, wouldn't we have

heard some sort of an event.

Like seen a billboard

or something.


We need to look inside.

Okay, where?

Anywhere. I-i-i...




There's nobody.

I called the restaurant

from last night

and there's no answer.



I called my mom.


She didn't answer.

what the hell is happening?

We walked through

half the city.

Where did everybody go?

It's like everybody

went on a lunch break.

City wide.

Is there a, uh...

A remote control.

There's gotta be coverage on

whatever the hell this is.

I mean, the TV's

still working.

Hey, mom, um...

It's been a super weird

day here and I just would

love to be able

to talk to you.

So if you can

give me a call.

The only channels that aren't

working are the news shows.

Riley, this is starting

to freak me out.

I know, I don't

get it at all.

If it were a plague,

where are all the bodies?

I mean, if it were aliens,

where are the ships?

I don't...

There's no

emails, no posts.

No activity anywhere.

Wait, what do you mean?

Hey, aims, um...

Call me when you get this.

I would love to

hear your voice.

No one's picking up.

Everyone should be up by now.

Nobody? No text messages,

no emails, nothing?


The Internet is

still working.

No, this is

from yesterday.

That hasn't been updated
