It's the last day on earth, twelve hours before an event will end life as we know it.
James (Nathan Philips) makes his way across a lawless city to the party to end all parties. Along the way he somewhat reluctantly saves the life of a little girl named Rose (Angourie Rice), desperately searching for her father. Stuck with the unexpected burden of responsibility, James is forced to question what really matters as the hours tick away.
