What if you were given the power to save the world? Henry isn’t sure his own miserable life is worth saving. His family includes his chain-smoking mother, a college dropout brother and his pregnant girlfriend, and his beloved Nana who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. His boyfriend committed suicide last year, he doesn’t talk to his former best friend, and he is ridiculed at school as “Space Boy”, due to the fact that he has been abducted over the years by a group of aliens. Yet, it’s these aliens who end up putting Earth’s survival in Henry’s hands. He has 144 days to figure out if humanity should and will continue or if it’s time to just end this entire mess. Press on big red button and be done.
Henry thinks he knows what his answer will be. Then he meets Diego, an artist with his own dark history, but a way of making Henry feel that life might just be worth the effort. Before Henry can save the world, he needs to know if there is a way to save himself.
