Depois tells the story of Z - a man tha survived the end of the world. Living amongst the remains of everything, he meets X and Y, two other survivors, each one marked in a completely different way by the terrible final event.
The film supports the following thesis: The idea of an end of the world to come, a final lift of the veil, works as a mechanism of social synthesis - it unites us by protecting us from the notion that, for many, if the world ended now, it wouldn’t make much difference. This idea - truly eschatological - invites us to look for a law of desire which is no longer beyond, in a death to come, but in the death that insists in the shadow of things.
