What could happen in your last three days on earth?

The world was awakened with the threat of total destruction. A meteorite will collide with Earth in 72 hours and the small town of Laguna listens to this news in despair and chaos.

Alejandro or Ale (Victor Clavijo) a carefree, happy-go-lucky lad decides to spend the few hours remaining with alcohol in his hand, cigarette in his mouth, and loud music in his ears.

But everything changed when Lucio (Eduard Fernandez), a person from his dark past, appears right on their doorstep.

He is now torn between protecting his brother’s children from Lucio and from the end of the world.

One thing's for sure, you wouldn't expect such story in an "Independence Day" inspired film.

I should say, this is not your ordinary end-of-the-world flick, where the character runs for his life.

What made the film extra special is its focus to a micro-story while the characters are moving around a macro plot.

The movie is a total package - from the cinematography, to the screenplay, to the sound effects, to the production design. Seamless. Almost perfect.

There would always be some flaunts you'll see, but when you look in a bigger scale, you'll realize, this is crazy awesome.

What would your really do on your last three days on earth?

I'd rather spend it in the streets, seeing people running around taking photos of them.

That would be perfect.
