The drought of 1976. Under the unforgiving sun, Gus (Luc Bruchez) is about to leave childhood behind. Nature withers, emotions swell, the family unit splinters; everything splits and cracks until the unthinkable occurs: the eagerly anticipated thunderstorms will sweep across the tired and worn countryside, washing a whole world away. A brilliant and merciless evocation of the once-in-a-century 1976 heatwave and its consequences for one French farming family. French with English subtitles.

“The atmospheric picture is a rural coming-of-ager that manages to reinvigorate a decidedly overstocked cinematic subgenre.” – Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter
