Vinden och regnet

Vinden och regnet The Wind and the Rain

Spain 1955. Two rootless survivors share a short journey before an indomitable catastrophe shatters their hopes and slight chance of happiness. Both are damaged by the cruel reality that hounds them. He is poisoned by a misanthropic ideology; she is its already scarred victim - a Jew without a country. An act of violence forces them into a joined escape and during a short boat passage between two islands, with their pursuers at their heels, panic brings them together in a passionate and intensely rendered encounter.
