Omar and Karina’s mother suffers a stroke during the family holidays. Abandoned and left only with luck, the siblings start a long journey to their grandmother’s house. On the way they will face a broken and divided country, wounded by mistrust, resentment and violence. VIENTO APARTE features diverse characters, many of which are strangers in their own land, and people who come and go along a labyrinthine road, until their final destination.
