Months after an apocalyptic nuclear event, survivors gather around a campfire and try to stave off boredom by piecing together an episode of The Simpsons. Over 75 years pass as the story is passed on from one survivor to the next in this new post - electric world.
By the end of this journey, something powerful and utterly original emerges. Mr Burns is a story about the nature of stories, how necessary they are to our existence and how our myths are shaped by the experiences we share.
