Songs for Rain

India202087mincolorFiction

A prolonged drought dries up a river, causing difficulties to the livelihood of the people in a remote fishing village. Losing their major income sources, they begin to desperately rely on shamanism and receiving advice from the elderly. One day, a priest declares that the only way to call rain is to marry an old man in the village to a young man. The people have a fierce discussion on this issue but eventually agree that they will make it happen. However, Benga, the naive man who was chosen as the groom, already has a woman he wants to marry. The movie bitterly criticizes collectivism that is accepted in the name of common interest. Can the sacrifice of an individual – one that is always weak - really make a miracle?
