2019 – CH-BE – 90′


WORLD PREMIERE - San Sebastian International Film Festival


The drought of 1976.

Under the unforgiving summer sun, Gus’s childhood is coming to an end.

Nature becomes withered, emotions swell up, and the family unit breaks apart:

cracks and crannies take over everything until the unthinkable happens.

The eagerly anticipated thunderstorms will sweep across the exhausted countryside and take a whole world with them.
