The End Short Film. Monika Blazkiewicz‘s The End (2010) plot synopsis: “The action of the film takes place in 2050 in an abandoned City. The whole world is destroyed after a string of events such as tornadoes, earthquakes etc. All these cataclysms happened due to people’s negative thinking and lack of hope for better future. The world is covered in ash and dust so the sun rays doesn’t get to the surface. It is dark all the time and most of the animals and plants died. People started eating each-other because there was nothing left. There are two main characters: Sam and Vincent. Sam is a positive thinking man who want’s to change the world and Vincent despite his care for his little pet rat (Bacon) is only thinking abut surviving. Sam convinces Vincent that together they can save the world an make their life better. Sam trusts Vincent but everyday he discovers more of his true nature.
I decided to choose an apocalyptic topic because of all the predictions about 2012 and the end of the world. People are talking about the cataclysms and global warming but I think that they should start of looking at themselves and change their attitudes. Otherwise, they will become a person like Vincent – more like animal, less like human.”
This plot sounds exactly like The Road, more like the book version, not the film version. This could be a tragic side story in that opus.
