Vestiges

What if we're not hypochondriacs at all, and in the end our beloved Western civilization goes down, and we lose everything that is important to us: our family, our friends and our savings accounts? The financial crash has come, and all of a sudden our society is gone. What if after the collapse of the West, the center of the world shifted to a place no one ever wanted to go? The dark comedy Vestiges is set in a futuristic dystopia, where the world as we know it is a figment of the past and Siberia is the new 'Mecca'. People from all over the planet navigate towards this last place on earth where civilization still seems intact to start a new life. Too bad the educated Europeans and Americans, with all their supposed superior intelligence, yet inflexible and intolerant demeanor, aren't welcomed by the trendy and successful culture of the Vestiges of Siberia. Needless to say clashes between the locals and the immigrants emerge, an amalgamation of cultural conflicts lost in translation. Racism uncovered, jealousy, cynicism, nostalgia, future anxiety, intrigue, love and hate Vestiges strips down human nature to its primal core. Will the new residents of Siberia be able to reconcile with the locals? Find out in Vestiges: the most biting satirical comedy of the year.
