Shirley has moved to a little town on the coast to take care of her grandmother. She drives a tractor in a coconut plantation, listens to rock music, dreams of becoming a tattoo artist and feels more and more trapped in the narrow world of the village. Her boyfriend Jeison also works on the plantation and spends his free time snorkelling for lobsters and octopus. As every year, in August the coast is lashed by tropical storms. A meteorologist comes to the village to study the local winds. As the floodwaters rise, Shirley and Jeison make a surprising discovery that confronts them with the duality of life and death, forgetting and remembering, wind and sea.
