It’s morning on an otherwise normal day when Miriam is arrested at her workplace and accused, without proof, of “people trafficking”. The violence she suffers during her imprisonment leaves a profound gap in her life. Adela works as a clown in a travelling circus. Ten years ago, her life was irreversibly transformed; every night during the show, she evokes her missing daughter, Monica. Tempestad is the parallel journey of two women – mirror-like, it reflects the impact of the violence and impunity that afflict Mexico. Through their voices, we are drawn into the heart of their feelings, steeped in loss and pain, but also love, dignity and resistance.
