  • Mónica, a 47-year old dancer, receives a call from Spain: her father is terminally ill. After 20 years, Mónica must return to the remote village where she was born. When she arrives, her father has already passed away and her mother decides to sell the family home asking Mónica to stay to help her. Winter comes. The perpetual silence, the extreme cold and the difficulty of living with her mother are proving tough for Mónica, who takes refuge in what she knows best: dance. 'Facing the Wind' tells the story of a family unable to communicate. It is indeed a thoughtful and loving portrait of a traditional rural lifestyle, which is beginning to disappear. It's a story about distances. But most of all, 'Facing the Wind' is an inner journey to learn again how to live and love better.

  • Mónica is a dancer in Buenos Aires. She gets a call from her sister Elena: their father is terminally ill. Her return to her family home, in a town in Burgos (Spain) opens some old wounds while it puts an end to others. Mónica goes back to living with her mother after two years apart. Together they must face the sale of their house, while Elena, who has always strived to develop a strong family bond from Barcelona, sees herself playing second fiddle. Mónica takes refuge in what she knows best, dancing, in an effort to become reconciled with a life and space that she once left behind. The involvement of Berta, the youngest in the family, helps renew the bond among the four women.
