Show details

Synopsis


All's fair in love and war. And videogames.


November 1998. World's End Estate, Chelsea.


Viv's made a decision.


She's left Norfolk and has moved back to London with her son Ben.


When the pair are thrown together with wild fire Kosovar Albanian painter, Ylli, and his enigmatic son Besnik, things start to change.


With the millennium around the corner, NATO joining the fight to free Kosovo and a solar eclipse heading towards World's End, life finally seems to be moving forward …


But first, Ben needs to finish his new video game.


A love story that looks at how trauma changes us, World's End explores the Kosovo War, single parenthood and sexuality - all through the lens of a 90s games console.
