Mantaray Film


In the near future - Öland is hit by a drought after years without rain. Terminally ill Leo and peer Zai find each other in a hospital. Together they run away from the suffocating confines and sadness of the adults to go on an adventure. The hospital's gardener has told them about how he can summon a mythical bird, Idrix, that has an ability to bring life. In their minds, this bird and the gardener are the only ones who can help Leo recover by bringing the rain back.
