SF IndieFest: GO/DON’T GO
First show: February 01
After an unknown cataclysm, Adam (Alex Knapp; Bad Exorcists, Alien vs Zombies) is alone, the sole inhabitant of a vacant, unchanging world. Before it all ended, he was a wallflower who could barely find the words to speak, let alone find the right thing to say to a girl. Now, the only one left, he’s made the silent, empty world his simple, singular domain. Basic routines keep him grounded as he makes his way through the desolate landscape, foraging and tending to a world left behind. He takes out the trash, changes lightbulbs, fixes cars, and tries to hold onto the little things he took for granted before it happened. In the stillness of Adam’s world, visions come to him—the fateful night his best friend Kyle (Nore Davis; Conan, You Guys Are Dope) introduces him to the love of his life, K (Olivia Luccardi; The Deuce, It Follows). Memories of a happier time, together… before it all ended. But maybe: a portent of things to come—someone, or something, is out there, trying to make contact—trying to tell him something. Or worse.
As Adam’s mental state starts to deteriorate, things become more uncanny and he is plagued by lingering questions and uncertain realities about his seemingly empty world. His grip on what’s left starts to slip away, sending him spiraling towards a deadly revelation.
Directed by Alex Knappe, USA. 95 mins.
