Aladár lives in deep poverty with his wife and children on a farm far from the village.
The driest summer of their lives endangers everything he has built for his family.
Every day, he prays to God with his childlike prayers. And every day, their struggle continues.
As his bitterness grows, he asks for rain like the world has never seen.
Aladár gets his wish, but God works in mysterious ways...
