'The Cool Apocalypse' is the story of four people during a summer day in Chicago. Paul and Julie are a couple just beginning. Julie finally takes the first step to introduce herself to Paul and they immediately connect. At the same time, Paul’s roommate Claudio and his ex-girlfriend bicker like an old married couple as they run errands to prepare Tess for a summer job in Italy. These two couples come together for a good-bye dinner for Tess, where one relationship blossoms while the other shatters.
