TEMPESTAD presents two women, their voices echoing over the landscape and highways of Mexico from north to south, as they tell how official corruption and injustice allowed violence to take control of their lives, desires and dreams. It is an emotional and evocative journey, steeped not only in loss and pain, but also in love, dignity and resistance.
