15 years after the Apocalypse, five men still manage to survive. Their ultimate quest is to find other survivors. Their way to salvation is a most astounding machine.
In this spare-parts world, they creatively compete to retain a sliver of humanity.
Armed with their talent for acrobatics and ingenuity, you’ll see how they get around in this world without women or computers.
Sometimes comical, sometimes nostalgic, these wacky characters masterfully manipulate various props such as a teeterboard, juggling clubs, a drum kit and even a bath towel!
They do not hesitate to bare themselves, ready to scour their souls as well as their bodies to make you laugh, to move you and especially to dazzle you.
