'In the End' is a psychological character study/family drama and takes place in a post apocalyptic world. After the fall of humanity, a family lives in an isolated cabin where they have been able to survive. Forced to remain in their metaphorical purgatory, the family's lives have become extremely mundane and the three are merely existing together indefinitely. The father, Arthur, is man with a hardened soul and does what he can to make his wife and daughter's lives livable. Already living through a loveless marriage, Arthur's wife Tess becomes even more emotionally distant following the death of their son and she begins to ponder what the family's purpose in life could be. Their daughter Angie has grown up in this new world and knows only the details her parents tell her about the world that was. With no influence from the outside world, Angie is extremely naïve and acts much younger than her age would suggest. In order to give his daughter a life worth living, Arthur only seeks to provide however he finds that more is asked of him than he can give when his wife makes one last terrible request. The film tackles sensitive taboo subject themes whilst also asking more philosophical questions such as much it truly means to be human
