Tempest is the parallel journey of two women. Mirror-like, it reflects the impact of the violence and impunity that afflict Mexico. A morning on a quite normal day: Miriam is arrested at her workplace and is accused, without proof, of “people trafficking”. Adela works as a clown in a travelling circus. Ten years ago, her life was irreversibly transformed with the dissapearance of her daughter. Through their voices, we are drawn into the heart of their feelings, steeped in loss and pain, but also love, dignity and resistance.
