A morning on a quite normal day: Miriam is arrested at her workplace and is accused, without proof, of human trafficking. The violence she suffered and was exposed to during her imprisonment has left a profound gap in her life. Adela works as a clown in a travelling circus. Ten years ago, her life was irreversibly transformed. Every night during the show, she recalls memories of her missing daughter, Monica. Tempestad is the parallel journey of two women. Through a subjective and emotional journey, this film conveys the paralyzing power of fear: fear as a sickness that prevents you from taking a stand for your own life, for the future of your children; which clouds your ability to dream and grow. Mirror-like, it reflects the impact of the violence and impunity that afflict Mexico.
