Siccità, a film directed by Paolo Virzì, is set in Rome, where it has not rained for about three years. This drought causes a lack of water and consequent thirst in the population, who in their search for a few drops find themselves with their minds altered, going so far as to upset the rules on which the entire community is based. These include a group of characters of different ages and social backgrounds, some victims and others opportunists. All of these people are desperate for redemption, but little do they know that their lives are bound up with each other in a rather dramatic way, as only sardonic fate is capable of doing.
