Imagine the end of the world via three disparate, tonally distinct scenarios. In A Brave New World mysterious virus brings the city to ruins and zombies flood the streets of Seoul. In The Heavenly Creatures a robot reaches enlightenment on its own while working at a temple. Its creators regard this phenomenon as a threat to mankind and decide to terminate the robot. In Happy Birthday a little girl logs into a strange website and puts in an order for a new pool ball for her billiards-obsessed father. Soon an unidentified meteor heads toward Earth and all human beings flee to underground bomb shelters.
