The End is near. The apocalyptic thriller that won the Silver Méliès Award at the 2013 Imagine Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival will be arriving on DVD and Digital format March 12, courtesy of Icon Home Entertainment.
Written by Sergio Sánchez (The Impossible), the film portrays an unforgettable vision of the end of humanity. After twenty years apart, a group of old friends reunite for a weekend in a remote cabin in the Spanish mountains. Although there is much to catch up on together, a dark moment in their past continues to play in the back of their minds and hover over them. Reliving the past quickly loses its importance however, as an unexplained celestial incident hits, leaving them stranded and without means of communication to the outside world. Searching for help, the group begins to implode under the pressure of their circumstances as nature dictates the start of a new order.
