The Year Without A Summer


The Year Without A Summer

Chui Mui TANMalaysia – 2010

Azman is a Malaysian rock singer over his peak. He comes back to his village, to begin a new life as a fisherman. His wife Minah is totally supportive. But his friend Ali thinks he is ridiculous. Especially since the fishing business is becoming difficult. In fact, the time is difficult for everyone. No one understands why there is less fish in the sea by now, so they just live on, as long as God allows them to. The movie is a poetic reflection on memories, friendship and dreams in a world related to the sea.
