A sequel to The Waiter (2000), The Apocalypse explores a time twenty years later in the life of Barnett Gary when millions of Blacks have perished from gun violence and AIDS, with the remaining numbers left to live on reservations scattered about the Washington D.C. area. When terrorist acts reduce an already desolate land to cringing in fear, the restaurant business that Gary has known and worked his whole life in is left in ruins for the lack of patrons. With his self-respect destroyed by the lack of ability to provide for his wife and son, Gary turns to Sylvia, a girl half his age who makes him feel wanted. The two begin an affair, with devastating consequences.
