At the end of the World (Fin Ar Bed) is the first Breton language drama series and a huge success in France. The lives of three strangers Marie (Nolwenn Korbell) Klet (Kaou Langoët) and Fañch, (Roger Stéphan) intersect and intertwine on the remote roads of Brittany, and sets them on a breathtaking road trip on the run from ghosts of their past and present, at the end of the world.
Three people meet by chance, three generations, over three days, they could be a grandfather, mother, and grandson,
their story is universally recognizable.
Marie, a career woman with marital problems, Klet a young man on the run, chased by his half-brother, they are thrust together with Fañch, an elderly widow, who communicates with the dead as well as the living.
With At the end of the World the director Nicolas Le Borgne says he wanted to mix the genres up, it is foremost a thriller with Klet who is involved with the mafia, there is also some comedic parts, and Fañch brings an element of the supernatural, while Marie who is a real working-girl anchor the story in real life. Fin ar bed is shot in the stunning wide open countryside of Nord-Finistère with its immense stretch of white sand beaches.
Fin ar bed is available either as a web-series in seven parts or as a film of 60 minutes.
