Short Film Profile

Ploaie in Desert

Henry Baftimbede is a 30-something black African business man, recently relocated from Paris to Bucharest with both his wife and 5 year-old daughter. Henry is a kind man, correct and very career-oriented. He is ready to sacrifice anything, even his own self, so his family can have the best financial situation possible. In doing so, he forgets that the most important things in life are the simple pleasures and the love of those closest to his heart. But when his car brakes down in the middle of the Romanian Baragan desert, on the way to a very important business meeting, Henry will meet a stray dog that will change him, teaching him how to enjoy life again and rediscover himself.
