On October 2017, two lovers boarded a boat to the end of the world. The boat starts its journey on September and it ends in January with the new year. A man and a woman meet and have a dialogue that includes culture, memory, ideas and a personal melancholy. They have finally found each other before the countdown stops. They are so far and so close to their own resurrection.
