“Apocalypse” is a dark fairy tale about loneliness. It combines animation with live action footage.

Maurice and Susie live together in a tower block infested with surreal pigeons. Maurice, 30 is a neurotic who hates the birds, because their cooing makes him insomniac. His junkie girlfriend Susie, 25 desperately needs a change in her life. An egg hatches on their balcony. The baby pigeon warns the young couple to start looking into each other’s eyes, or else they will die. Susie believes the bird, but Maurice only wants to kill it. Are they going to find happiness?
