Doom and gloom are on the way. The Y2K apocalypse can’t be stopped. Abbie’s older brother issues him the ultimate challenge before it goes down: beat the infamous level 256 in PacMan and no getting up from the couch until he does so. Abbie’s survival story begins here; inside a rotting living room with no food or water, and an evolving door of numbnut friends and acquaintances. It’s THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL by way of SLACKER.
