Shirley has left the big city to live in a small seaside town and look after her elderly grandmother. She drives a tractor on a local coconut plantation, loves rock music, and wants to be a tattoo artist, but she feels trapped in the tiny coastal village. She is involved with Jeison, who free dives for lobster and octopus in his spare time. During the month of August, when tropical storms pound the coastline, a researcher registering the sound of the trade winds arrives in their village. The high tides and the growing winds mark the following days of the village, and a surprise discovery takes Shirley and Jeison on a journey that confronts life and death, loss and memory, the wind and the sea. First feature.
