Synopsis

Chad, 2006. The government has granted amnesty to all war criminals, including Nassara, now a modest baker. Atim, 16 years old, is given a revolver by his grandfather so that he may kill the man who killed his father. Atim leaves his village for N’djamena, seeking a man he does not know.

MUBI's take

Winner of the Grand Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival, this Chadian film presents an ambiguous tale of revenge, deeply rooted in the country’s recent scars. Dry Season raises difficult questions about the role of justice in the aftermath of conflict through a touching personal story.
