An old couple in the highlands of Bolivia. They wait for the rain for their llamas, which usually only comes once a year. The wide steppe has cracks everywhere, the well in the village has dried up. A story told in grandiose widescreen pictures about love and self-determination in old age, understanding between the generations, the inaction of the state, emigration and the slow loss of a way of life, of knowledge and traditions. Multiple awards, including at the Sundance Film Festival. (reg)
