Tempest is the parallel journey of two women. One morning Miriam is arrested at her workplace and is unjustly accused of “human trafficking”. The violence she experienced during her imprisonment has left a profound gap in her life. Adela works as a clown in a travelling circus. Ten years ago, her daughter Monica went missing and every night during the show, Adela recalls that tragedy. Through their stories we see the violence and impunity that afflict Mexico, and the women’s voices draws us into the heart of their feelings, steeped in loss and pain, but also love, dignity and resistance.  (www.filmaffinity.com)
