You can't win, you can't break even, you can't get out of the game. Three days before the end of the world, a journalist is searching for his family when his car breaks down outside the town of Crumb, population: 3. And while those three seem friendly...ish, he soon realizes their relationship is much more complicated than it seemed. In fact, everything about Crumb is complicated, except for this: there's no leaving, no matter how hard you try. A darkly funny and spirited look at human behaviour in the face of imminent death, The Laws of Thermodynamics is a gas-station gothic that examines loss, obsession and what it means to really say "The End".
