An atmospheric mix of lo-fi science-fiction, glam-inspired rock music and Zeitgeist-immersed comedy-drama, set in Taipei. With newscasts announcing that the end of the world is imminent, two slackers – a rock musician and a carpentry teacher – decide it’s time to take action. They’re joined by a young Russian woman, with whom they launch a virtual Noah’s Ark on the web. The site becomes so successful that the trio’s activities come to the attention of space aliens.

Supported by the Taipei representative office in the UK.
