As they navigate a post-apocalyptic city ‘K’ (Johann Myers) and ‘Z’ (Géza Röhrig) collect bodies, loading them on to their truck whilst recounting gruesome stories from a forsaken past. As tale upon tale deftly rolls into the next, passing between narrators, we witness a series of darkly comic fables brimming with foreboding - each as terrifically macabre and nightmarish as the one before.

Director Chino Moya has created a series of intense and increasingly disturbing allegories about humanity's darker instincts - this is a grotesque and compelling debut and a modern anthology like no other.
