Based on the successful novel with the same title by Emmi Itäranta, the film is set in a distant future. There is hardly any water left, and a military dictatorship rules the world. When young Nuria becomes the new tea master after her father dies, she inherits with the title at the same time a secret that has been hidden for a long time. Now she must embark on a dangerous journey to ensure the survival of her people.
A film so far away and at the same time so imaginable. That's cinema!
