Until The End of the World is an odyssey for the modern age. As with Homer's Odyssey, the purpose of the journey is to restore sight -- a spiritual reconciliation between an obsessed father and a deserted son. Dr. Farber, in trying to find a cure for his wife's blindness, has created a device that allows the user to send images directly to the brain, enabling the blind to see.


The creation and operation of such a machine is in stark contrast to a deteriorating global situation, where the continued existence
of mankind is under threat from a nuclear powered satellite that is falling toward earth.







Until The End of the World is a tale
of love and hope -- a metaphor for
the journey we must
all take toward our future…
the ultimate road movie.
