Set on a farm in the unforgiving Namibian desert this film is a poetic exploration of one woman’s journey through drought, loss and love to healing. As the sun burns away her land and her life following a seven-year drought, her future seems destined until an unexpected fork in the road causes her to question everything she has come to expect from her life. As her husband leaves the farm in search of water, a water diviner unexpectedly arrives, bringing new life to the farm. But this beautiful stranger, having fought as a guerilla soldier for the liberation of Namibia, is also plagued with the scars from his own past.
