Sunday's Child

The climate apocalypse has hit. Dublin is underwater.

Best friends Bláthnaid and Debs have survived, and live on the top floor of the SIPTU building. With only seagulls and their kayak for company, they spend their days drifting and reminiscing over the last days of Dublin. Debs looks to the future, but Bláthnaid is tormented by guilt. Why were they blind to the wave that was coming? And can they salvage a future from the wreckage?
