The Tragic Story of Nling

The Tragic Story of Nling

Available on Prime Video
To solve their dual problems of Pollution and Homelessness, the ancient city of Capillia built a circular wall in the center of their city where they threw all of their homeless people and their garbage in the hopes that they would act as a self-sufficient compost heap. This garbage feeding community was called Nling. In order to keep the Nlingians pacified, they also threw in many bottles of alcohol. The community managed to survive isolated for many years, until the day the garbage and alcohol stopped coming. August and his best friend Donkey are Nlingians who have become desperate alcoholics. Their thirst for alcohol leads them on a quest beyond the wall where they discover that Capillia has been completely destroyed. As they head into unknown waters in search of more alcohol, August's thirst brings him to the point where he kills his best friend in order to drink the alcohol from his veins. At his lowest moment right before death, he experiences an unorthodox redemption that comes to him from the stars.
