Synopsis

Fear of the future kicks off an emotional crisis in this surreal and thoughtful indie drama, that's partially narrated by a cat named Paw Paw! Said moggy has a terminal illness and requires daily care for as long as he lasts, a responsibility that seriously freaks out the 30-something Los Angeles couple that have decided to adopt him. Once they bring Paw Paw home in a month’s time, Sophie and Jason reckon their freedom and youth will be gone: turning pet ownership into a symbolic reminder of how short our stint on Earth actually is. So faced with 'The End' they resolve to spend the next 30 days realising their unfulfilled ambitions; poignantly and amusingly exploring life’s little absurdities in the process.
