Ontroerend Goed, creators of Fight Night, bring us a new piece about the end of humanity and what comes after. We could hardly imagine it: no mortgages, no knitted scarves, no swimming pools, no butterfly strokes, and no honey kept in glass jars. Animals would no longer be stuffed, skyscrapers no longer built. There would be no more suicide and no more mathematics. No more talk about the old days, about what’s possible. There would be no more memories, no more words.
We could hardly imagine it. It would never get this far. We’d find a solution. A world without us.
