Before the World Ends tells the story of Daniel, a fifteen-year-old boy who lives in his own small world, facing his apparently insoluble issues: a girlfriend who doesn’t know what she wants, a friend who is accused of stealing, and a small town that will have to be left behind. Everything happens when he receives a letter from his father, who he has never met and didn’t even remember. Through the letters and photographs sent by his father, Daniel finds out that the world is much bigger than the one he used to know. Maria Clara, Daniel’s little sister, watches everything going on around him and, with a critical view, narrates this story. A story in which everything seems to be about to end: the black bears, the orange juice, the polyandric tribes and the peaceful life in São Pedro do Sul.
