SYNOPSIS
A dumbfounded JJ wakes up in his car. As he explores his surroundings he begins to notice that there isn’t anyone around. He walks past empty streets, roads, houses, hotels… all empty. As he is wandering, he finds himself in a parking lot where a shadowy figure leads him to a surrealist birthday dinner with his ex-girlfriend.
