Set in a too-near future, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World explores what people will do when humanity's last days are at hand. Can one man find his greatest love at the worst possible time? Dodge (Steve Carell) decides to find out by taking a road trip to reunite with his high school sweetheart, while Penny (Keira Knightley) is on a different journey of her own.

As their respective journeys converge, the two spark to each other and their outlooks—if not the world's—brighten.
