Ernesto Gómez Cruz,
Love, food, sex and death mix together in an explosive cocktail when a mechanic (Fábregas) takes his family (old granny Sara García included) to attend a car race. The innocent picnic becomes a feast, but then the old granny dies. Written by

This is a low cost movie (most Mexican movies were low cost on the 60s and 70s, the decline of the industry was very marked) that deals with an imagined situation that has been proposed in literature elsewhere.
A group of people get trapped in a huge traffic jam in their way to assist a motor sports event, the movie follows their adventures, including the death of one of the protagonists that brings out very witty moments of black humour with a very Mexican flavour.
The cast includes some of the most beloved Mexican film stars, some starting, some ending their carriers back then, which should make it interesting for any fans of Mexican cinema.
