Upon the news delivered by the UN Secretary General announcing the end of the world in 72 hours by an impact event, Ale decides to spend his time left drinking and listening music, but he has to deal with the arrival of mysterious Lucio, focusing then on helping his mother Rosa and his brother Tomás' four children instead.
The screenplay was penned by the director alongside Juan Velarde. The film is a Maestranza Films, Green Moon Producciones and Pentagrama Films production. It was shot in the province of Seville.
Selected in the 'Panorama' lineup of the 58th Berlin International Film Festival, the film was presented on 14 February 2008. It later screened at Málaga Film Festival's main competition on 5 April 2008. It was theatrically released in Spain on 25 April 2008.
Jay Weissberg of Variety summed up the "unpleasant predictable" thriller as "usual psycho killer looking for revenge drama gets an end of the world overlay".
Jordi Costa of Fotogramas rated the film 3 out of 5 stars highlighting its "visual power" whilst citing its subpar writing as a negative point.
Rubén Romero of Cinemanía rated the film 3 out of 5 stars, considering that after achieving the most difficult, the director, displaying "clear symptoms of suffering from horror vacui", goes on making "unnecessary formal pirouettes and forced plot twists", albeit conceding that "all in all, [the films is] a good and necessary debut".
