Plot: The film is set in the mid 1990s and centres around three main narratives, which evolve simultaneously. These are simple and ordinary people, thrown into the throes of a destructive and bloody civil war. The experiences they encounter may not be directly related to the ensuing conflict, but, these events, like the inconsistent weather, steer their lives. They yet have to continue, transcending these encounters and exist in a society that is traumatised and disturbed by nearly twenty years of civil war.
