♪ Sixteen summers since ♪

♪ My last confession ♪

♪ Bless me father, it appears that I've sinned ♪

♪ Broken bones and hearts ♪

♪ One great depression ♪

♪ I loved and lost her like a leaf in the wind ♪ Washington has released a statement saying that the light, which has grown in size dramatically over the last 48 hours, is most likely a large meteor or asteroid, nearly 300 million Miles from earth.

However, Francois Deleruyelle, the amateur astronomist who first spot-fed the light, has already attracted a lot of interest after his emphatic claim that the object is.

Headed directly towards earth.

Empty the fucking till.

Yeah, okay... Hurry up!

Okay!

Okay, okay!

Hurry the fuck up!

For fuck's sake, hurry up!

Is that everything?

That's everything!

Are you sure?

I swear. You full of fucking shit?

No! That's everything, I swear!

No it's not. And the rest.

But I swear, that's all I've got!

Think I'm fucking stupid?

Get some more! No!

You got more down there and I know it! But that's all I've got!

That's all I've got! Please just take it and go! Are you fucking kidding me?

No! Get your fucking safe!

Look, I've not got a safe!

Aye, bullshit!

Get your fucking safe.

Look, I've not got a safe!

Please, just take the money!

Get my bag and get the fucking safe open!

I've not got a fucking safe!

You fucking lying to me?

No, I'm not lying!

Please, just take the money and go!

You're fucking lying to me.

Look, please just take the fucking money!

Get down there and fucking get it!

I've not got a safe, please go!

Please... I swear, I'll fucking do it!

Please, please, just go!

It's a fucking gun in your fucking face.

Please!

Fucking open it!

I haven't got one!

For fuck's sake, hurry up!

Move it! Haven't got a safe, mate!

What are you doing?

Get fucking back!

No one needs to get hurt.

We'll just calm down...

You. Wallet. Now.

And what if I don't'?

What are you going to do?

Put a bullet through your head.

That's what.

Fucking no, please, let me just fucking go please!

No you won't.

You're not going to do that.

What, things haven't worked out well for you so you think that gives you the right to come in here and wave a gun in people's faces?

Why don't you go and fuck yourself?

Wallet now, or I swear to God I will fucking kill you!

Please, just fucking give him your wallet.

Please give him your wallet!

Just go!

Fucking hell, man. You've got the money.

Go!

Just give him it.

You could probably do anything you want.

You know that?

If you've got money problems, why don't you go and get a fucking job?

Oh, I know why.

'Cause You're too much of a pussy.

A pussy?

Yeah.

A pussy.

You've got two fucking seconds.

Do you want to shoot me?

Go ahead you fucking coward.

Do it!

It's alright, it's alright.

Shh, shh, shh...

Please help me, please don't let me, please don't...

It's alright, it's alright.

999, what's your emergency?

Hello?

Yeah, I need, I need an ambulance.

Some fascinating things coming out from some of the calls today, I mean, if all we really have to think about is, where, where were we tens of thousands of years ago.

When this asteroid began its journey?

Hey.

I've been trying to call you for two hours.

Where are you?

I'm at the, um...

It doesn't matter.

You okay?

Yeah, I'm fine.

Um, I could do with a drink actually, if you fancy it.

Of course I fancy it.

Why do you think I was calling?

It wasn't for your stimulating fucking conversational skills.

Okay, where are you?

I'm in the white swamp, but I'm just moving on to somewhere else.

I'll text you the address.

Right.

As long as it's not another house party, okay?

I just want a quiet drink.


Hi, this ls Richie.

Leave a message and I'll call you back.

Hi mate.

It's me. I'm here. Where are you?

I'm downstairs.

Don't even know if I'm in the right house.

Call me back.


Please do help yourself.

This yours?

It is.

That's alright, I forgive you.

At least you've got good taste.

It's wasted on that lot.

One for the road.

I bought it back from Venezuela.

You ever been to South America?

No.

Uh, not yet.

I'm Maya.

Cole.

Nice to meet you Cole.

That's a cool name, eh?

Whose name?

The astrologists.

Astronomist's, whatever it is.

De-LA-Royale.

Deleruyelle.

Deleruyelle.

Huh, first name or a last name?

I think it's his last, but it works for either.

Deleruyelle Jones.

Deleruyelle Goldstein.

He sounds like a Jewish coventry detective in a 19608 crime novel.

Sounds more like a porn star.

I mean, what do they say?

A 0.00001 % chance it's going to hit us?

Mm.

You know, you can see it now.

Are you serious?

It's been visible since Wednesday.

Someone's a little bit self-involved.

It's been one of those weeks.

I've been having all sorts of...

Hey, I've got my own problems.

Do you know what Would be the best problem solver of all time?

If we knew with absolute certainty that thing was going to hit us.

I mean how liberating Would it be without any doubt it was actually going to smash right into us.

Nothing Would matter.

Um, everything Would matter.

Why Would it?

Well, I'd agree with you if they were going to hit us in three days.

If they were three days away, there Would be nothing we could do to prepare.

We could just forget about all of life's problems and money and bullshit and have fun.

Now that Would be liberating.

This thing's what, three years away'?

Two years, 291 days.

Wow.

What a nerd.

Thank you.

So if it was definitely going to hit us but it was two years, 290-whatever days away, I think it Would be the opposite.

We'd all be so burdened with the responsibility of having to survive.

We'd be so preoccupied making plans to survive annihilation...

That we Would never be able to just sit back and enjoy it.

Exactly.

This is getting pretty deep.

Mm, you started it.

So who do you know here?

That's slightly embarrassing.

I was here to meet my friend, Richard.

Richie.

He's upstairs.

To speed into one of the bedrooms with a girl dressed like princess Diana.

Ah.

Okay.

Well, in that case, you've got me.

I don't know anybody.

You know me.

Except for you.

So I know you don't work with Richie.

What do you do?

Well, h-how do you know that I don't work with Richie?

Because your hands don't feel like you've been counting money your whole adult life.

Well, I'm just doing a bit of manual labor at the moment.

Geez, don't bore me with the details, will you?

I work on a building site.

A building site.

Yep.

I notice You're avoiding using the word "builder."

Yep.

It's alright. I get it.

I sometimes pour pints at my dad's pub for some extra cash.

It doesn't make me a bar maid.

Maya, you coming?

No, I'm going to hang around for a little while longer.

It was nice to meet you.

It was great to meet you guys.

Cheers. See ya.

See ya.

God.

Wouldn't expect those two to get together, Would you?

Jesus and Hitler?

You know, I think he was after a threesome.

Well, I think he Would be lucky.

I only met them half an hour ago.

That's all it takes.

Is it?

Put this on.

I don't think so.

Don't give me that look.

God...

You serious?

I'm so turned on right now.

Aha, this smells of, um, feet.

So what did you actually want to be'?

Well, I trained to be a carpenter.

Oh, like Jesus.

Ah, exactly like Jesus.

Well, just don't go making your own cross.

Ah.

Smile.

I love this.

Turn it up!

Come on Geppetto.

Are you serious?

Yes.

Come and dance with me.

♪ I was heading South, kicking through the leaves ♪

♪ And last weekend was when our clocks went back ♪

♪ Summers have gone, but it don't feel bad ♪

♪ You Would've thought by now that I'd have found my senses

Fuck.

If you think you can do better, be my guest.

You're better off using your bare hands.


See anything?

No.

I think they're following you.

Yeah, right.

I thought we had to get back before sunset.


You're not coming out with me again.

It's not even dark yet.

Well, funnily enough, I'd rather not wait until the last minute.

Well forget it.

I'm not staying in here.

It's for your own safety.

Can't just keep me locked up in the dark all day.

I'll get scurvy.

You get rickets from not getting enough sunlight.

Oh, I'm sorry.

I forgot you had a degree in medicine.

I can just about outrun them.

You Can't.

I can run faster than you.

Are you doing that to piss me off?

Doing what?

Sniffing.

Blow your nose.

What, are you my grandmother?

Barry Gruberman.

Why do I know that name?

He had a map.

Not this...

He was heading to Norway.

I Can't keep having this same conversation.

That's where all the evacuees were heading.

Yeah, where?

They said if you get to an evacuation center, then refugee boats are leaving for Norway.

And how long ago was that?

How do you even know it's still safe?

Well, if it doesn't get dark, then...

Oh, here we go.

There's a reason they call it the land of the midnight sun.

That's where she is.

I know it.

You have no idea where she is, and that's exactly how you like it.

Your parents aren't stupid.

They'll have got to one of the boats.

Just trust me.

Have you got any Pesto?

Uh, down the back, top shelf.

Now, returning our attention to the night sky...

That's £7.80, mate.

What's the latest?

Oh, they reckon it's like fifty Miles wide.

No, I mean with the guy who got shot.

Oh, Michael.

Yeah, Michael. How's he doing?

Not great.

They think he's eventually going to need a transplant.

What kind of transplant?

Do I look like a doctor?

They, they find the guy who did it?

Please.

More chance of finding my virginity.

Who sent this one in.

Look at that gorgeous skyline over London.

The reality is that one day, whether it's tomorrow or...

I brought this for you.

For us.

I mean, you said we were having fish, so.

Great, okay.

Hmm, glasses...

How long you lived here?

Uh, about two years.

Can I put some music on?

Yeah, please.

Yeah, go ahead.

I knew we should've gone out.

No.

You've got it all under control.

I can see you run a tight ship.

Somali pirates run tighter ships than this.

Cheers.

Don't worry, it's not venezuelan.

Mm.

That's lovely.

Oh my God, you don't like it.

Uh, um...

Sorry I, I Can't stand white wine, and it makes me depressed.

Well why didn't you say?

Because I nearly threw your stuff up at the party...

If there any alcohol you can drink?

I don't know.

How about something non-alcoholic?

What about a nice Shirley temple?

Listen, trust me, I-I drink everything else.

Red, red wine, beer, vodka...

Mm, my God, I Can't believe I forgot to tell you.

Do you remember Chloe and Steve from the party?

You know, the guys I was going to get a lift back with?

Um...

The threesome.

Ah.

Sexy Hitler.

Sexy Hitler.

Well, when they left, they got in a taxi and they ended up in a head-on collision with a lorry.

They all got killed.

The driver as well.

Hang on, f-i read about that.

That was them? Yeah.

Fuck.

I know.

Mm.

Hmm.

Go on, you can say it.

What?

You know what.

You're dying to say it.

Say what?

You know what.

I'm not saying anything.

But, it's true though isn't it.

I knew it.

If it weren't for me...

You're evil!

You're welcome.

Yeah, okay, thank you.

Thanks for...

Saving my life.

Yeah, well, listen, it was, it was no sweat.

My hero.

I know.

It's the, um, it's the, the Pesto.

I went, I went fucking mental with the Pesto.

Hm.

Did you make this?

I said I trained as a carpenter.

I didn't say I was any good.

You know what? I love it.

Must be the floor that's uneven.

The floor is uneven.

It is.

Really?

And two slippery supernovas please.

What's a slippery supernova?

Half vodka, half whiskey with a coffee bean in it.

God almighty, I am starting to think you've got some serious problems.

I do, I do.

I need help.

That's £14.75 please.

Oh am I...

I'm paying.

Good.

Alright. He's paying.

She orders, I pay.

That's it.

After Pestogate, you'll be paying forevermore.

Just establishing the boundary, you know that?

I'm so sorry, he's an alcoholic. Yeah, well done.

He beats me.

I'm her, don't say that. Out on my arms.

Come on now, Maya. Don't say that.

It's not true.

It's...

And he picks his nose and eats it. It's...

That's, that is true.

Locks me up in the shed.

This is where my mom and dad first met.

Really, in here?

Mm.

She worked in the bar, and he'd come in every other day and try and chat her up.

And wore her down eventually.

I think that's why he wanted his own pub.

He'd seen the woman behind the bar with the customers in the palm of her hand, you know?

Mm.

Can you imagine how busy this Would've been back in the day.

Mm.

If you could go back in time to any point in history...

Ancient Rome.

Really?

Yeah.

I think so.

Coliseum, right?

I'd love to see the gladiators.

Two men fighting to the death.

Is that weird?

Bit weird. Is it?

How about you?

Ancient Greece.

For the togas.

Togas.

Did you hear about the dyslexic who went to a toga party dressed as a goat.

Oh my God.

No?

No.

I actually got a broken nose once.

All due to time travel.

Amazing.

What for?

Yeah, I was quite drunk.

Ah.

And there was this kid, who was about ten years old.

Oh, dear God, where is this going?

So anyway, I was very drunk, and I saw this kid, and I was like, he was just a mini version of me.

And it might've been because I was hammered, but he literally looked like the spitting image.

Right.

So, I crossed over the road, went over to him, looked down, looked in his eyes, deep into his eyes.

And I said "I'm you from the future, and I've got a really" important message for you.

"Whatever you do, don't get on that boat."

What boat?

I don't know, I'm making it up.

And what did he says?

He ran off, screaming.

Wow.

And a few days later, walking down the same street, in fact, he was there with his dad, but his dad was clearly devoid of any sense of humor, so, dosh!

Oh no!

Yeah.

I looked way more like that kid than his dad anyway.

Do you ever want kids?

No.

No?

No.

That urge has never really kicked in.

You?

Cue the violins.

Oh.

I, I Can't have children.

Don't stop for God's sake.

I had an abortion when I was 18, and there were some complications but...

You know, I was...

Totally fine with it, so...

Don't you dare tell me You're sorry.

Oh, no, I wouldn't dream of it.

There are way too many people in the world anyway, right?

Last thing we need's another you running around.

But you know what I realized the other day?

Time travel will never be invented.

No?

Why?

Well, if it was going to be invented at any point, then we'd have met someone from the future already, wouldn't we?

Not if they could only travel forward.

Anyway, we might've met people from the future.

Hmm.

Yeah, they've probably got very strict guidelines about what they can say.

Maybe.


Ahh!

What?

Just talk to me.


Hey. Ahh!

How did you get out?

Go back.

You go back.

Shh, w-we need to keep quiet.

It's daytime.

What are they going to do?

Maya.

H ey! Maya.

What are you going to do?

Maya be, come on, then, beam me up! Keep quiet!

Shh, Maya!

Come on!


There's nothing in here.

We could've eaten that deer.

Not unless you like it with green shit all over it.

What, you mean like Pesto?

Do you think they regret coming here all at once?

What do you mean?

Mm, they fly fifty billion light years to get here, then they Can't cope with daylight.

It's like going on the Costa del sol and realizing you were allergic to dickheads.

They're not on fucking holiday.

Well how do you know?

Because when you go to the Costa del sol you don't enslave and slaughter all the locals.

You don't know that's what they're doing up there.

For all they know, they could be taking people somewhere better.

And maybe that's why they haven't left yet.

They're not going to go until they've rescued everyone.

The reason they haven't left, Maya, is because they haven't killed us all yet.


Are you going to try and convince yourself that's Norwegian?

Tell me that doesn't sound Scandinavian.

But you don't know what they're saying.

It doesn't matter what they're saying.

What matters is people are there.

Well, it could just be a recording put on a loop.

Well then, there'd need to be someone there to keep the power going.

If people are there, that's where we need to head.

Yeah, and what about in winter when it's constant darkness?

Well, then we'll head South.

You haven't got a clue.

They won't disappear.

Can't just keep running from them.

I'm trying my best in extremely fucking difficult circumstances.

Well, I'm sorry if the circumstances are difficult for you.

How do you think it's been for me with you constantly shutting me out.

Sh-, I'm not shutting you out!

You're here, aren't you?

When did you decide to give up on us?

Go, go!

Hey.

Can you believe it?

What?

Do you ever listen to the news?

No, what's going on?

They found bin laden yet?

Very funny.

They're saying the asteroid might actually hit us.

You're kidding me.

Nope.

Washington made an official statement.

They're saying a 20% chance.

What?

I know!

Holy fucking shit.

Ugh, I've got to go.

I'll see you in an hour, right?

Yeah.

Love you.

Love you too.


Where do you want to be when it hits us?

If it hits us.

I don't care, as long as I'm with you.

Do you want to get married?

Yeah, sure.

I'm serious.

Well, so am I.

We might only have a year left on the planet, so it's not exactly a lifetime commitment.

Yes it is.

I'm asking you to spend the rest of time with me.

But what if it doesn't hit us?

What if it just passes us by?

Then we'll be stuck together.

What, you think I'm going to dump you just 'cause the world hasn't ended?

Okay.

I will marry you on one condition:

There's no ceremony, no reception, no church.

We just agree from here on in that We're officially married.

Agreed.

Okay, give me your left hand.

If we do this, then it's real.

There's no turning back.

For better or for worse.

In sickness and health.

You may now kiss the bride.

I love you.

No matter what.

No matter what.

Get down.

Ugh!

Maybe they were trying to communicate with us.

Come on.

We're in a perfectly safe place.

It's daylight!

They're not going to get us.

Just calm down.

I won't calm down!

I haven't got a fucking clue where we are.

You took me off course.

Me? Yes, you keep distracting me!

What?

I told you to stay put, but you wouldn't listen, Would you, and now, as usual, I'm the one who has to act like a fucking adult and protect us while you piss about.

Piss about?

Yes.

And I'd appreciate it if you Would take our welfare, that's mine and your welfare just a little bit more fucking seriously.


There's no food here.

It's all gone.


I thought you'd left this behind.

Put some new batteries in it for you.

We're going to be late.

Can you just throw that away?

We're like, a few minutes late.

That's all, just relax.

We were supposed to be in there at quarter to.

I was ready.

You were the one faffing around.

I was trying to find the medical card.

The medical card you were supposed to be looking after.

Did you lock up properly?

Yes.

I'll see you inside.

Do you even need me in there?


He was, of course, a rather controversial figure.

That news, once again.

Francois Deleruyelle, the amateur astronomer who first discovered the Deleruyelle asteroid cluster two and a half years ago has died at his home in Paris.

Initial reports coming in are suggesting that he took his own life, but those reports are not yet confirmed.

With just six months to go until the Deleruyelle reaches earth's orbit, the world anxiously awaits news from the.

United States regarding the deliverance vessels and what, if any, success they are likely to have in diverting the objects from the collision course with earth.

We are joined now on the line by Michael Peters, a research scientist out of southampton university.

Uh, Mr. Peters, perhaps you could talk us through your thoughts on the latest information that is surfacing from the United States.

Good afternoon, um, I mean, the most interesting thing that I find with this is the sheer lack of any real information coming from Washington.

In, in terms of the deliverance mission itself...

The space agency, of course, are trying to put an optimistic spin on things as always, but everyone knows this is a long shot.

It's effectively a last-ditch effort.

Certainly our best chance outside of simply keeping our fingers crossed and hoping for the best.

You mentioned that the aim is to divert the course of the asteroids, but, uh, what Would happen if they were actually broken into pieces?

What effect Would that have?

Well, I'm sorry to say that unless those smaller pieces are also diverted, then it really won't make much of a difference to us here on earth.

You see, as the situation stands, the main Deleruyelle is fifty Miles wide.

Even if it broke into fifty smaller pieces, if just one of those pieces hit us, the devastation Would be catastrophic.

To put it into a bit of perspective, if an asteroid the size of a house hit earth at this kind of speed, it.

Would have a level of energy equivalent to the Hiroshima bomb.

That's about 20 kilotons.

Now if the asteroid was just one mile wide, You're looking at a million megatons.

That's ten million times the amount the obliterated Hiroshima.

If it hits land, pretty much everything within a thousand Miles Would be wiped out.

The dust and debris that it Would throw up into the atmosphere Would block out the sun and most living things on the planet Would wither and die.

And, you know, if...

It lands in the ocean, well, we've all seen what happens.

Tidal waves hundreds of feet high...

♪ Was further on down the road ♪

♪ And give us... ♪


How is it possible to be this scared of something you haven't even seen yet?

Say it.

For God's sake, just say it!

Well, do you really think this is a good time to be having a baby?

Of course it's not a good time to be having a baby.

In the history of mankind it's probably the worst fucking time to be having a baby.

What do you want me to do?

We should at least speak about it, shouldn't we?

What don't you understand?

The fact that I'm even pregnant is a miracle.

I might not get another chance.

Maya.

Nobody is having children right now.

Nobody.

Maya!

Stay there!

Where are you going?


I'd like to leave now please.

Oh no, don't be hiding in that cupboard, Cole, please.

Just get off me Cole, let me go!

We Can't leave now, we Can't leave... Get off me!

Just, just get off me!

This is all your fucking fault!

My fault?

Yes!

Your fault!

You're such a coward.

I told you wouldn't have a baby.

Why do take so much fucking pleasure in reminding me that.

Because of this!

All of this blame and contempt coursing through your veins.

It's all aimed at me!

Well who else is there?

You know what hurts the most?

It's the fact you don't even try and fucking hide it!

You think it's my fault that we haven't eaten in weeks.

Well...

We're, We're lost.

You think it's my fault that We're separated.

Oh, I have never said that!

I've never said that I blame you!

You just fucking said it!

Don't bullshit me!

I, I didn't mean that!

Did you or did you not just say it was all my fault, yes or no?

You're the one who blamed yourself.

This is not me!

This is all about you!

All I've tried to do is protect us, and every single word that comes out of your mouth is like a little fucking barbed reminder of the fact you think I failed.

Why? What have I said?

This is all coming from you!

Just admit it.

Just admit it.

You think I'm a failure.

You always have done...

You never thought I could take care of us!

I never gave a shit that you weren't on that building site!

Oh, thank you, even though you could've done anything there it is! Thank you!

Thank you!

It's not my fault you were too much of a pussy to do something about it.

A pussy?

Yes, a pussy. Yeah.

Oh.

Wake up, Cole!

Just tell me, what were you so afraid of?

Oh, I don't fucking know Maya, I don't know.

Maybe it was the fact that we had absolutely no money!

Maybe it was the fact I wasn't ready to be a father!

Maybe it was the fact there was a fucking giant unidentified object...

Oh... about to wipe out the entire planet!

God, that's not what I'm talking about and you know that.

It was never about the Deleruyelle.

It was about you.

You just used it as an excuse to give up on...

On everything!

That's fucking bullshit.

That is bullshit!

You look at me in the eyes and tell me you think we were ready for a baby.

No one's ever ready, Cole.

Bringing a child into that mess was fucking outrageous.

It was irresponsible and it was cruel.

I'm sorry, it was.

You think I forced you into having a baby?

You told me you couldn't even have kids.

How dare you say that to me.

How fucking dare you say that to me you fucking bastard?

Maya, Maya, Maya, Maya. You so much'.!

Maya, Maya, Maya, Maya. You say that to me'?

I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

No...

Just get off me!

Sorry.

I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

I fucking hate you.

I know, I know.

I hate you so much.

I know.

I'm sorry.

Hello, Barry Gruberman.

Barry, you know We're having a baby.

There's nothing I can do.

Look, we've not had any new contracts.

With everything that's going on it's...

Who's fucking building anything, son?

Is there no one else you can let go first?

I'm sorry kid.

I've got to prioritize the lads who've been with me the longest.

What about, um...

What about Callum?

Yeah, he's 19 years old, no responsibilities.

He's been working with me for three years.

Fact is, your son's got nothing to do with it.

Look Cole, I don't have to explain myself.

Yes, you do.

Barry, I've worked my ass off for you.

Harder than half the lads on that site.

Please, don't do this to me.

There's nothing I can do.

Please, Barry.

I need this job.

There's got to be something.

Sorry, Cole.

Barry?

Cheers.

How are you doing'?

Congratulations.

On the baby, I mean.

Yeah, than ks.

All healthy?

Ten fingers, ten toes?

Yeah.

Baby's fine, as far as we know.

The universe...

Gives with one hand, takes away with another.

Soon the whole world is going to know what that feels like.

Come on, you don't know that asteroid's going to hit any more than I do.

An asteroid...

Is that all you think it is?

It's not like they want total control over us.

I'm just saying I could be a big help, that's all.

I'm not taking it.

We don't need charity.

Cole, it's not charity.

The pub is busier than it's ever been.

My dad needs more staff.

Maya...

They're offering you work!

Yeah, alright, so it's bar work, but...

Come on, is that really any worse than working on a building site?

Oh, thanks very much.

Anyway, that's not the point, is it?

I just want to help.

They think that if we can get...

No, they think that it's my fault We're not even married.

I told you, I put her straight on that.

Where do they get the right to judge me?

Where is this coming from?

What, what the hell is wrong with you?

They're offering help.

Just grow some balls, suck it up and accept it.

You know what, the only reason your old man's pub didn't go under two years ago is 'cause of those fucking rocks in the sky.

What the hell are you talking about?

Oh, don't give me that.

As soon as people realize we might all get wiped out, all anyone wants to do is go and get fucking pissed.

Not everybody.

Yes, everybody.

People stop giving a shit about money and their cars and their fucking jobs, 'cause you know what'?

They realized none of this shit fucking matters.

No one gave a flying fuck, including us.

Do you remember?

The reason your parents have sat on a pile of money is because everyone else stopped giving the fuck about it.

Oh, nice language to use in front of your unborn child.

I'm being serious, Maya.

So am I.

Maybe when I'm carrying your baby you could keep the

"fucks" to a minimum.

Oh, for God's sake, what are you, my grandmother?

No, I'm your wife, and I'd appreciate it...

No, You're not my wife, are you?

And I'm not your husband, and we both know why that is, don't we?

It's because you had absolutely no fucking desire to marry me whatsoever.

Look, the bottom line is that we need the money.

We're going to need to return the pushchair.

The pushchair is going nowhere, Maya?

We Can't even afford a proper cot!

I'm not making the cot because we Can't afford a cot.

I'm making the cot because it's something I want to do for me.

I'm making it because I want one fucking thing not to be about money.

But You're never going to make it Cole.

I have been out of work for two minutes.

Two minutes!

Will you just give me a second to get back on my feet?

You're not a carpenter, Cole.

I'm sorry, but You're not.

Everything you build falls apart.

Look at the table and the, the fucking chairs.

Do you think I'm going to let our baby sleep in a cot that you've made?

You know, sometimes I feel that You're oblivious to this whole thing.

You're, You're in denial.

I'm in denial? You're...

Oh, what Would you want me to do?

Spend all day hiding in the cupboards?

You know what, I Can't do this.

I Can't do it.

Nothing about this is right.


What're you doing?

What if she's up there waiting for us?

What're you talking about, Maya?

Where's the baby food?

You're not serious.

Come on.

I thought we were saving it.

Well, There's no point if we die of starvation before we even get to her.

I don't want it now.

Okay, well, I'll have mine.

Maybe we could share one.

There's not enough.

It's supposed to be a joint decision.

Don't give me the look.


I wouldn't touch that.

You hear me?

Hello?

Shh, shh.

Can't believe you guys are here.

My name's Keith.

Keith NOVAK.

Where are you?

Follow the extension cables.

You're heading to Norway?

You're not?

I don't buy into all that "land of the midnight sun" stuff.

It's a load of cobblers.

Try telling that to this one.

Heh, try telling that to my wife.

Where is she?

She headed up north with everyone else.

She knew I didn't want to go, so she took her baby girl and left in the middle of the night.

Why d'you have that video playing outside?

It's a distraction.

You don't have any kids.

We do.

A girl.

She was born just before.

A baby girl?

Where is she?

She's with my parents.

When the ships arrived, we were at the hospital.

She was with them.

We haven't seen them since.

They're heading north.

How do you know'?

How do you know that they aren't...

Because we know.

Sorry.

Do I know you from somewhere?

No.

I don't think so.

You sound familiar.

The prime minister has called for calm as the world faces up to what he describes as an unprecedented global crisis.

Our correspondent Nicholas ADIDAGEE has this report.

At approximately 0600 hours eastern standard time, the deliverance nuclear vessels dispatched to the Deleruyelle asteroid were detonated.

However, the impact of the explosions was insufficient to divert the asteroid from its course.

The deliverance mission has failed.

We will continue to monitor the Deleruyelle as it moves closer to earth over the coming weeks, but I'm afraid I won't be taking any questions at the present time.

Do you want to feel?

As we've already heard at came the news we've all be dreading, nah, You're alright.

A statement from Washington confirming that the deliverance mission has failed in its attempt to divert the Deleruyelle from its possible collision course with earth.

Now that's despite the fact that all 19 of the unmanned nuclear inceptors were successfully detonated, and the news has obviously come as a devastating blow.

Only days ago, the us government seemed to have high hopes that the mission could be a success.

It seems experts still haven't gotten to the bottom of what went wrong, and sources have told me that there are lots of heads being scratched in Washington right now.

They're still not sure as to why the operation didn't work.

The response to this has been almost instant, and that response has been civil un...

Hi, this is the voicemail for Maya GARISSEY.

I Can't answer the phone right now but leave me a message and I'll call you back.

Maya.

You Can't just pack your stuff up and leave in the middle of the night, okay?

Now, give me a call back.

I came down to the hospital today, to the appointment, hoping that you'd be here.

Where are you?

You Can't just keep avoiding me, alright?

We obviously need to talk about this.

Just, just give me a call back, please.

Why did you want to die?

What?

That night.

You wanted him to shoot you.

What're you talking about?

Didn't you have anyone you cared about?

Hang on, you think I actually wanted him to kill me?

You were daring him to put a bullet in your head.

I was standing up to him.

He was scared. He was never going to pull the trigger.

And You're sure about that?

He only shot you because you attacked him.

Right.

I see.

I've, I've got to go.

You know, I had what you had.

Someone who cared about me.

Look, mate, you don't need to convince me you've been dealt a shi I I y hand, alright.

Her name was aurora.

I know, right'?

When I first met her, she couldn't speak any English.

And she was only here on holiday.

I saw her walking along Saint Cyrus beach.

It was the middle of January.

She had this hair, this crazy blonde hair blowing all over the place.

We were literally the only two people for Miles around.

She was walking one way, and I was walking the other.

Well, I knew we were going to pass each other.

As she got closer, I was desperately trying to think of something to say.

Anything.

Before I knew it, we were crossing paths.

We made eye contact for a split second.

I balled up.

Then we just passed each other like ships in the night.

I carried on walking.

I knew I'd just saddled myself with a lifetime regret, wondering what may have happened if I'd just had the nerve to speak to her.

And just as I was wishing the sand to swallow me whole, I heard her voice from behind me ask if I had a lighter.

Her English was terrible, but she knew how to say that.

So windy.

Took us forever to light that fucking thing.

By the time it did...

I was in love.

We spent the rest of that day together, and the day after that, and somehow I kept managing to convince to extend her holiday, until eventually she just...

She loved me back.

And for the first time in my life, the rest of the world didn't exist anymore.

But then I end up in here, and the "me" that she fell in love with didn't exist anymore.

And she did everything she could to try and find him again, but she couldn't.

He was gone.

And I was all that was left.

And then I pushed her and I pushed her and I pushed her.

Until eventually, when she couldn't...

When she couldn't take any more, she got on a plane and she went home.

And all I got was a postcard telling me how sorry she was.

Tell me.

Why should she be sorry?

What is all this stuff?

That's for communications.

Communications?

Is that your field?

Afraid not.

I'm actually a doctor.

You've contacted other survivors?

No, no, no, no, no.

Well, communications with who?

With them.

You've had contact with the ships.

Kind of.

Listen to this.

It's coming from them.

Well, what is it?

I don't know.

I've been trying to send a signal back.

Well how do you know that's even going to work?

I don't, but we've got to try, right?

I mean, We're so busy running away from them that...

We've missed the point.

Like it or not, our life is in their hands.

What signal did you send them?

Just basic morse code.

Morse code?

You may as well a shakespearian sonnet.

They know a lot more about us than you realize.

Here, look at this.

Here, look.

C27, what is that'?

It's on one of the ships.

I was trying to make contact.

If they had been observing us, learning everything about us for years, they'll have worked out that we stopped caring a long time ago.

This world is like a piece of fruit.

An orange, decaying from the inside out, and We're like hundreds of ants, crawling all over, bleeding it dry.

So they've got-ten rid of all the other ants, so that we have a chance of surviving.

What the hell are you talking about?

All those things want to do is kill us.

You don't know that.

That's where you've gone wrong.

Look around.

Things have changed.

This isn't the same world anymore.

But You're still trying to apply the same logic to it.

They've wiped everything out.

But We're still here.

Why? Why?

Because We're lucky.

Come on!

There's got to be a reason they haven't killed us.

Oh, they've tried.

Believe me.

Have th ey?

You've been on your own too long.

Me?

Or you?

Have you ever seen one of them?

Of course.

Haven't you?

We've been hiding.

What do they look like?

There's a pair of photographs over there.


You can keep one if you like.

Help persuade the nonbelievers.

Convince the doubters.

Clear up the inevitable confusion later on.

They didn't go to Norway.

Hey!

I've got money!

Money?

What use is that?

Please, let her go.

Please don't hurt my wife.

Whatever happens to her, that's not my responsibility.

I'll fucking kill you!

Shh.

They can hear us.

They can always hear us.

Ants and oranges, Cole.

Ants and oranges.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am very sorry to bring you the news that the final attempt to divert the.

Deleruyelle has failed.

If nothing changes, then, we'll all be hit within the next couple of hours.

We'll be playing your requests as long as we possibly can.

Good luck everyone.

Welcome to voicemail 1571.

The person you are calling is not available.

Please leave a message after the tone.

L-ll, it's me.

Do you remember the night we first met?

We talked about how we'd feel if we knew the Deleruyelle was going to hit us.

I said that nothing Would matter and you convinced me that everything Would.

What changed?

I'm sorry I left.

It's not what I wanted, Cole.

But even if the world doesn't end, I don't want to spend the rest of my life with some who wishes that...

Ahh...

Ahh!


Hey!

Hello?

Hey!

Hey!

They've blocked the.

We're not letting anyone else in!

Nw names Cole narrow ay.

My wife's having a baby.

I'm sorry, we Can't help.

Please, wait, wait, wait, no no!

She's already here, she's in the hospital.

You just need to let me in.

Okay...

Go in the car park.

There's an entrance down there.

I'll come out and meet you.


Jesus, shouldn't you be inside?

Inside, outside, what's the difference?

Whoa, what, what, what are you doing?

Hey!

You keep quiet!

They might hear you!

What do you want'?

I want my life back.

Three years ago, you took it from me and I want it back.

Michael, I didn't take your life.

It was him.

You know it was him.

It wasn't him!

Yes it was, and the fact that he's walking around breathing the same air as you is a cruel fucking travesty.

It is, but it's not my fault.

He Would've just walked out of there if you'd just kept your mouth shut!

You had that gun pointed in your face you and you still left that night with a second chance.

And what have you done with it?

Nothing!

You don't know anything about me.

I know a waste of fucking life when I see one.

And I know when it comes to that thing in the sky that me and you are exactly the same.

You want it to wipe out the entire planet just as much as I do.

But I have nothing and I have no one!

And what's your excuse?

Alright, Michael.

Please, please, alright, look.

Whatever you think, alright, and whatever happened, I didn't plan it, okay? I didn't think...

You don't think!

You're for yourself and no one else.

You're a coward.

You wanted him to shoot you.

Alright, alright, You're right.

I'm a coward, I admit I'm a coward, but I need to find my wife.

I want to be with my wife and child.

They need me.

They don't need you.

What do they need you for?

Look around.

It's too late.

The Deleruyelle is here.

They're finished like everyone else.

You don't know that.

Your wife and your baby might as well lock themselves in the cupboards and hope for the best.

Just let me try.

It's too late.

Please.

Please, just let me try.

Just give me a chance to be a father.


M-Maya?


Shh.

You've lost her Cole.

You had everything.

You had her, but you've lost her, and now it's time to accept that.

Shh.


Just let it go.

All that blame, contempt coursing through your veins.

Just let it go.

Shh.

Tell me, what are you so afraid of?

Maybe it was the fact you had absolutely no money.

Maybe it was the fact that you weren't ready to be a father.

Maybe it was the fact there was a fucking giant unidentified object about to wipe out the entire planet.

It was never about the Deleruyelle.

It was about you.

You just used it as an excuse to give up on...

On everything.


This planet had its chance, Cole.

Just like you have had this chance in a blur.

You see, this world is like a piece of fruit.

An orange, decaying from the inside out, and We're like hundreds of ants crawling all over it, bleeding it dry.

Ants and oranges, Cole.

Ants and oranges.

Move towards the light.

And stay in the light.

Move towards the light.

Stay in the light.


Where you go from here, Cole...

That's up to you.

But this, this is where I need to be.

That's where she is.

That's where she is.

I know it.


Wake up, Cole!

Cole.

Cole!

Can you hear me?

Cole!

My name's Keith NOVAK.

Try and stay with me.

This is Dr. NOVAK, I need assistance.

C27, what is that'?

It's on one of the ships.

I was trying to make contact.


You've had contact with the ships.

No, listen to this.

It's coming from them.

I've been trying to send them a single back.


♪ I was heading South, kicking through the leaves ♪

♪ And last weekend was when the clocks went back ♪ Two men down.

Is anyone there?

Cole! Is anyone here?

Pick up!

Cole!

Cole are you there?

Cole?

Can you hear me?

Cole, she's here.

We've got a baby girl, you should see her.

She's amazing.

Cole?

Where are you?

Have you heard what they're saying?

They're saying the Deleruyelle's breaking apart.

We're going to be okay, Cole.

We're going to be okay.
