An American film producer named Marie returns to her homeland, Russia, where her mother's dead body has been found under bizarre circumstances. She never knew her, having been adopted and brought to America as a baby. The only clue as to what might have happened is an isolated, abandoned farm in the mountains that supposedly belong to her natural parents. Being the only next of kin, she inherits the place, but no one will take her there as the local superstitions state that the area is...DAMNED. Only one man will embark on such a dangerous and long journey...A stranger that oddly seems to know quite a bit about her history...But once arrived the guide mysteriously disappears, forcing Marie to explore the derelict location alone. She discovers someone else on the property...A man named Nikolai, who claims to have been lured there exactly in the same manner, so he could discover the truth behind his unknown past as well. They become stranded in the immense compound, plagued by terrifying, ghostly visions...The problem is that the ghosts that wander around are THEIR OWN. Dead versions of themselves marauder between the buildings in the night...Time begins to move in reverse as history re-lives itself in front of their very eyes. While both their ghosts, illustrating how they will die, patiently await their living counterparts to expire. A cycle of horror comes to fruition, as they are revealed the reason they have been summoned for this perverse reunion...And the brutal secret behind their family.
Death never runs out of time.

More Movie Taglines:
- Death never runs out of time.
- 40 years to learn the truth. 24 hours to survive it.
- The basic crux of the movie was based on an original script that Karim Hussain wrote in 1999, titled "The Bleeding Compass".
A few weeks before the production started Richard Stanley came in to rewrite the final production draft with director 'Nacho Cerda' because Karim Hussain was in Montreal preparing La belle bŕte (2006).
Writer Karim Hussain said that the film was inspired by obsessions with family and the double aspects of everybody's lives. Also, Hussain based his work on some experiences he lived at his father's farm as a child.
Filmax wanted a name actress for the role of Marie and there were some executive negotiations with actresses like Nastassja Kinski and Holly Hunter. Director Nacho CerdÓ insisted on an unknown because he wanted to bring more humanity to the character. CerdÓ picked up Anastasia Hille after a casting session in London and Filmax finally went with the director's choice.
