At an international school in Jakarta, a philosophy teacher challenges his class of twenty graduating seniors to choose which ten of them would take shelter underground and reboot the human race in the event of a nuclear apocalypse.
The play that the students perform in the bunker during the third iteration is William Shakespeare's 'Othello'. The movie shows an excerpt of three lines from Act 5, Scene 2, in which Desdemona dies at the hands of her estranged husband Othello after he has been tricked by his advisor Iago into believing that she's an adulteress.
But what kind of cataclysm are we talking about? Gamma ray burst? Pandemic? Erupting super volcano? A sudden shift in the Earth's axis rotation? Grey goo?
Mr. Zimit: Hang on, Chips, we'll get there.
Chips: But is it biological? Geological? Thermo-nuclear? ...
Mr. Zimit: Let's go ...
Towards the end of the movie, when the students form a line to leave their textbooks at Mr. Zimit's desk, the sequence has been cut and edited to skip half of the students, and focus only on James (who's first in the line), Jack, Vivian, Chips, Kavi, Georgina, Utami, Bonnie and Parker when they're approaching the desk, in that particular order. However, when James and Jack are standing at the desk, it is clearly seen in the background that Kavi is actually standing fourth in line (right behind Beatrice, who's third), and later when Kavi is standing at the desk, it can be seen that Vivian and Chips are standing behind him in line; even though the sequence order makes it seem like Kavi came at the desk *after* Vivian and Chips did.
