Abstract:

The End of Pinky revolves around three fallen angels seeking companionship and humanity in the shadows of the red-light district, in a mythic, magically realized Montreal. The survivor of traumatic childhood experiences recounted in heartbreakingly droll fashion, Johnny is a handsome thief who finds himself drawn to the fragile beauty he sees in Mia. Both have a soft spot for Johnny's sweet and hapless best friend, Pinky, who also happens to be Johnny's partner in crime. But when one of Pinky's endearing quirks sets off a tragicomic chain of events, Johnny plots revenge with seemingly amoral, methodical detachment. As he sets out on his grim mission, Johnny's chances of ever truly connecting with anyone -- including Mia, who reacts to him with a mix of hope and dread -- appear unlikely. Peopled with exquisitely conceived characters living on the margins of society, this dark yet whimsical story casts a clear eye on the frailty of human relationships.
