Manila, 2034. Millions have perished from a flu epidemic known as the ‘Dark Killer’ and volcanic eruptions have destroyed the environment and landscape of the country, throwing it into permanent darkness. Set in a seemingly endless night, the nation is ruled by a paranoid dictator whose rule is staked on divine right, enforced by armed militia. The cast of characters bring romance and thrilling intrigue into the plot. Shot in striking black and white, the lo-fi and minimalist filmmaking contrasts the haunting and bleak vision of the future.
