Devon is at her wit’s end and everyday as a mother, wife, and disgruntled employee has become an exercise in fleeting patience and sanity. And then, the thunder stopped. Devin’s ever present ambient auditory app featuring calming storms, her salvation, isn’t delivering the goods and Devon’s unraveling times perfectly with the arrival of the (literal) storm of the century which will challenge her sense of family, self, and survival.
The End of the World is a glimpse into how a broken family weighs the life altering decisions they never imagined having to make.
