"A powerful and cautionary tale of survival in a dying world" – The Hollywood Reporter
Elderly couple Virginio and Sisa have lived all their lives high on the Andean plateau, but drought driven by climate change is drastically affecting their simple way of life.
When their grandson arrives to persuade them to move to the city with the rest of the family, they must face the reality of changing times.
Beautifully shot by photographer-turned-filmmaker Alejandro Loayza Grisi, with non-professional leads, this gentle and meditative fable reflects on an existential issue facing humankind.
