"I saw a storm coming from the North,
In a diner of the small town of Smithereens, three of the Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse wait, restlessly, for the Fourth Horseman to arrive and begin the end of the world.
Cameron stumbles into the diner, chasing a girl whom he has never met and, unwittingly, becomes that Fourth Horseman.
However, when Cameron refuses to strike the Sword of Apollyon and begin the Armageddon, the other three horsemen are left without a purpose, without an Apocalypse, and without further direction.
In fact, they're not certain Cameron didn't strike the sword ... and in the flash of lightning when Judgement was passed, they had been left behind.
"The trick to the Apocalypse
is knowing which direction
to face when it hits!"

Horses of the Apocalypse
In a diner of the small town of Smithereens, three of the Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse wait, restlessly, for the Fourth Horseman to arrive and begin the end of the world. Cameron, a single man with aspirations of falling in love, stumbles into the diner, chasing a girl whom he has never met and, unwittingly, becomes that Fourth Horseman. As the others try to talk this Fourth Horseman into following his dream and talking to the girl, the other three slowly begin to realize what the Apocalypse is all about: that it has already begun, and that if they don't do something quickly, it will pass them by. "What is the Apocalypse? Is it fire and brimstone and dieties passing judgement? Or is it just you and me; giving up?"
