The sudden death of international clown master Jean DuCoque brings together our motley trio: Bobo (David Earl) a hobo clown who has hit rock bottom… Pepe (Fionn Foley) a talentless mime … and Funzo (Natalie Palamides) an inadvertently terrifying “street clown”. After a mass brawl at the funeral with some vengeful human statues earns them a night in jail, the group emerges to find a country suddenly plunged into overnight anarchy by a major solar flare.

No power. No internet. No one is safe. Lugging DuCoque’s stiffening corpse, our band of unlikely heroes escape with The Great Alphonso (Ivan Kaye) a pompous ex-TV celebrity and Jenny Malone (Amy De Bhrún) a clickbait reporter with a head full of ambition, conspiracy theories and “Mammy issues”. They venture cross-country in Bobo’s jalopy in search of answers and learn that this might just be their time to shine…
