Synopsis:
Before the Rain unravels within an unstable and hostile climate where ingrained anxiety and Fears of the past and present and political unrest lead to hate and violence. Comprising of three stories, Words, Faces and Pictures. Each focus on conflicted love haunted by a greater context. Both doomed by history and complicated by love. In Words we meet Kiril a young monk who has taken a vow of silence in a reclusive monastery. He meets Zamira a young Albanian girl who stands accused of murder and on the run from a revenge mob.
In Faces we meet Aleksander, a disillusioned war photographer just returned from assignment and hoping to rekindle and relocate his affair with Anne a married London based picture editor. The final story, Pictures, sees Aleksander return to his native village in Macedonia, now politically divided. Despite the cost, he helps Hana, his first love, whose daughter is accused of murder.
