Synopsis

A millennial tree that once birthed Yosonuviko, the village of the clouds, comes back into collective memory to the locals through the ancient language of rain, Sa'an Savi, to remind them of their feeble human condition among nature's immensity.



Director's Statement

Las palabras de mi madre en su lecho de muerte desataron esta búsqueda que culminó en una metáfora comunal sobre la vida, la muerte y nuestra huella en este mundo.
