They embark on a journey with their roommate, Ellen, reliving their relationship's origins, which begins to reveal its flaws. Their arguing begins to accelerate the universe’s erosion, leading to them being trapped in a void of space.

    In the short film directed by Joshua Cloete, 'We Need to Break-Up!!!,' a toxic relationship risks cosmic catastrophe. Enid and Daniel live in denial until a group of interstellar beings known as the Guardians intervene. They're transported to a multiversal HQ, where they learn their love could erase the entire universe. As their universe collapses, they must make a profound choice – to stay together or to break-up. This heartfelt sci-fi romance coming-of-age story navigates the complexities of relationships, delivering a poignant message about acceptance and growth in the face of adversity. Just as comics blend genres, our film combines romance, drama, sci-fi, as well as a coming-of-age story. It celebrates the multiverse concept often seen in comics, using it as a backdrop to explore the complexities of love, redemption, and self-discovery, delivering a captivating cinematic homage to comic book storytelling.
