"Released widely in 1966 to critical acclaim throughout Mexico, Tiempo de morir (Time to Die) marked an auspicious directorial debut for a then 22-year-old Arturo Ripstein. The film, shot in black and white, was co-written by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Carlos Fuentes, two writers who would eventually achieve near mythical status as internationally acknowledged literary giants."
– Brooklyn & Boyle,
After serving his conviction, a former gunman returns to his town planning to live a quiet life, however, the sons of a man he killed have other plans.
In the depths of winter, the village cut off by snowfall and barely a ray of sunlight reaching the valley, a tragic accident leads to the death of one of Brenner's beloved sons. When another son is mysteriously killed, it's clear this is not a coincidence: the time has come for Brenner's family to pay, and Greider plans to settle a score long forgotten by everyone but him.
