In a not so distant future, plants refuse to grow, and life as we know it ceases to exist. A forsaken survivor miraculously resists death, roaming past the decaying corpses and vestiges of our bygone world. Sustained by the memory of his lost lover he embarks on a mission to plant three seeds – which he is convinced have the power to restart life on this planet. His journey is further challenged by a tense encounter with another lonely survivor, who will test his resolve and his sanity, each increasingly fragile amid the backdrop of human extinction. (Directed by Yuri Alves) | BROKEN CLOUDS Film
