In the Bolivian highlands, an elderly Quechua couple has been living the same daily life for years. During an uncommonly long drought, Virginio and Sisa face a dilemma: resist or be defeated by the environment and time itself.

A visually stunning film set in the harsh but beautiful highlands of Bolivia. An elderly couple, Virginio and Sisa, have lived out their married life in the traditional way in this vast , challenging landscape. Things come to a head with the visit of a grandson from the city, who is shocked by their way of life in the face of drought and increasing infirmity. The film mirrors the universal dilemma of an elderly couple reluctant to accept the need for change to an easier lifestyle.

Winner of the 2022 Grand Jury prize at Sundance, this film has 25 Wins and 23 nominations from worldwide festivals listed on IDMb. Trivia - the actors playing Virginio and Sisa are married in real life.
