Two indigenous women from different backgrounds meet on the street in the city when cruelty and fear have driven one of them out of her house, into the rain. Their capacity for imagination and similar cultural experiences weave a delicate tie between them. Both women now have to cope with their own battle when they navigate the rough sea of motherhood, class, race and continuous colonialism.
