What would you do with your last day on earth? Who would you spend it with?

Two teenagers receive the dreaded call just after midnight: today will be their last day on earth. Sometime in the next 24 hours they'll both die. They don't know each other, but they meet on the Last Friend app, something like Tinder for the doomed. For their final day they connect and attempt to tie up their loose ends together, wandering the city, preparing friends and family for the inevitable, and finding unexpected love and friendship in the process. Silvera is at his tragic best here, and manages deep emotion without sentimentality.
