On the outskirts of a Moldovan village lives a lonely grandmother. As a daily ritual, she takes care of her garden and her little farm, waiting for a visit or just some news from her children or grandchildren. One summer day, all grandmother’s routine breaks down when the water in the well disappears and local River dries up.
