QUECHUA & SPANISH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
Alejandro Loayza Grisi
In the Bolivian highlands, an elderly Quechua couple has been living the same daily routine for years. When an uncommonly long drought threatens their entire way of life, Virgin and Sisa face the dilemma of resisting or being defeated by the passage of time. With the arrival of their grandson Clever, the three of them will face, each in their own way, the environment, the necessity for change, and the meaning of life itself.
Screenplay: Alejandro Loayza Grisi
