In the interview, Kirsten talks about the last days before she left Toronto. She stayed in the basement watching TV while the neighborhood emptied out, until one day Peter said to her it was time to go. They hotwired a car that the neighbors had abandoned, but eventually they got trapped by abandoned cars and had to start walking. They walked east and south, around the lake and into the United States.
Amidst all the death and emptying of civilization, the only course of action that seemed reasonable was moving and taking to the road. They embark on a journey of miles and miles that Kirsten will ultimately repress.
