Goodbye World

When a mysterious cyber-attack cripples civilization, a group of old college friends and lovers retreat to a remote country home, where they must cope with an uncertain future while navigating the minefield of their shared past.

James and Lily live off the grid, raising their young daughter in a cocoon of comfort and sustainability. When a mysterious mass text ripples its way across the country, triggering a crippling, apocalyptic cyber attack, their home transitions from sheltered modern oasis to a fortress for the estranged old friends that show up at their door for protection and community. The unexpected reunion–abundant with revelry and remembrances, generously enhanced by organic wine and weed–is quickly undermined by the slights of the past, the spark of lingering flirtations and the threat of a locally grown new world order.

Balancing tense confrontations with slivers of levity, director Denis Henry Hennelly pinpoints a future where ideology explodes into action in every area.
