Written by Sergio Sánchez and starring the inimitable Maribel Verdú, he End (Fin) tells the story of a group of old friends as they reunite for a weekend in a remote cabin in the Spanish mountains. After twenty years apart, the group have more than a little to catch up on, but lurking underneath the laughter and stories is a murky episode from their past which continues to haunt them. Their weekend retreat takes a turn for the unexpected, however, when a sudden, unexplained celestial incident leaves them stranded and without communication to the outside world. On their way for help, the group starts to disintegrate, just as a new natural order is unveiled before their astonished eyes.
