What if there was no tomorrow? What if you knew the world was coming to an end? How – and with whom – would you spend your last hours on earth? These are the questions facing a number of very different individuals ahead of the millennium in this beautifully shot drama. Don McKellar plays an architect who plans to meet his maker alone, while others party, or pray, in groups.
A recently married couple make a suicide pact, but are caught apart and struggle to get back together. One man pursues final sexual conquests and a weak woman strives to gain courage. As the end of the world approaches, these strangers' lives end up interacting. This critically acclaimed drama stars some of Canada's finest film talents including Sandra Oh (Sideways), Sarah Polley (Splice), Genevieve Bujold (Anne of the Thousand Days), Roberta Maxwell (Brokeback Mountain), Robin Gammell (Bulworth), Callum Keith Rennie (Sci-Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica) and master director David Cronenberg.
