End of The World

Poetic – Character Development – Symbolic

Three people awake and know, that the world is soon going to end. Nothing to do about it. They say farewell to all that they have known and begin a journey. The journey ends at the mountain. And the world comes to an end.

I am the boy who lost his father.

He sat by the phone, waiting for his dad to call him. He was afraid that his dad didn’t love him any more. He thought about calling him instead. He did nothing. So nothing happened.

Life goes on…

I am the abandoned woman with the child.

She felt like yelling at him. But she just turned around and walked away. All of a sudden she was alone, and didn’t know what to do about the child. Isolated from the world.

Life goes on…

I am the old man who nobody listens to any more.

He cried for her. He yelled when he stood alone by the coffin. He was silent when he was brought to the nursery home. He had no more strength.

Life goes on…

Until they awake and know. In less than two days, the world will end.

A slow, dreaming and symbolic story about three people who all try to find themselves in a world that is inevitably coming to an end.
