The end of the world is near. Agencies that kill people unable to deal with the fact that everything will be over soon flourish everywhere. Just like many others, eventually Laura turns to one of these agencies. As stipulated in the contract, she is guaranteed a painless death in no more than 48 hours. But something unexpected happens.

Production notes

Instant movie made for the Overlook Film Festival - Cinema in Borgo. Shot and cut in three days on the gorgeous Italian Riviera, between the hills and the seashore. The agency scenes were filmed, in the heart of the medieval village of Finalborgo, relying on the very rare breaks that some kids in the alleys would take from their high jinks.
