Written and directed by Zak Hilditch, this Apocalypse/Drama took a rather dark look into -- as the title suggests -- mankind's final hours inhabiting this Big Blue Marble. It starred Jessica De Gouw (from TV's short-lived Dracula series as well as a short guest-starring stint aboard the CW's popular Arrow), Nathan Phillips (from the very good single season Syfy series Hunters), and Angourie Rice (Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Spider-Man: No Way Home). Here's the plot summary as provided by IMDB.com:
"A self-obsessed young man makes his way to the party-to-end-all-parties on the last day on Earth, but ends up saving the life of a little girl searching for her father. Their relationship ultimately leads him on the path to redemption."
