Original title: Sin invierno
Author: Maite Carranza
The most shattering predictions about the environment’s deterioration have come true: the global rise in temperature and the atmospheric pollution have spread out the drought, the floods and the misery, ever increasing the imbalance between Northern and Southern countries. Mario is no longer able to look with indifference at the slow agony of his city’s trees. Everything reminds him Ana. He lives obsessed with that woman who left him deeply disturbed, getting him involved in a tragic episode that shook the hospital where both were working, and then she mysteriously disappeared. Mario tries to forget her, but an unexpected phone call suggesting a meeting in a remote Mauritanian city will be enough for him to abandon his routine and go towards an uncertain trip in quest of love and truth.
A gripping love story that talks about the contradictions of a world doomed to development at any price. Deception, betrayal and lack of hope, in a futurist fable about pharmaceutical fraud, illegal traffic of toxic wastes and the secret struggle of an ecological organization.
