A couple and their teenage son eke out a living on a hilltop, doing the laundry for local hotels, despite the intermittent water supply. Their simple life is overturned by the arrival of a father-and-daughter team of diviner and well-digger, who promise to bring an end to this precarious existence by finding a source on their arid hill. But ultimately, these newcomers quench a thirst far greater than than the simple need for water.

  • ★★★½ review by Jesús Placencia on Letterboxd

    So somebody's seen Tarkovsky.

    Fantastic performances all around. Interesting relationships. Beautiful cinematography. Dry style. The heck with the ending.
