The End of the Squirrel is an irreverent indie apocalypse film about two siblings stranded in an antique shop waiting for the impending zombie horde to break in and end their lives. A surrealist sequence provides a visual reflection on their time in the barn, scored by an original song played on a weathered piano uncovered among the mountains of ancient treasures.
The End of the Squirrel is an emotional zombie horror short about two people awaiting their deaths as a horde of zombies are about to break into their little shelter.
