Escaping the Fragile Planet

Απόδραση από τον Εύθραυστο Πλανήτη

A few hours before the world ends, two men have an unexpected encounter, while the world is about to end by a strange pink fog that is spreading throughout the city. There is neither past nor future for them, only the space inbetween, where they just decide to live, despite the violent touch of time.
