Ionas Dreams of Rain

Ionas viseaza ca ploua

Ionaș is an old Romanian countryman who spends his summer nights guarding his cornfield against the starving boars that come to eat his crops, a year-long work.
The battle is not to fall asleep, as he cannot be aware of anything, except his dreams. The old man believes that the recurrent dream of his dead father brings the rain, which almost every time comes along with the boars – the menace that he cannot see, but only hear.
In dealing with his inner tumult, Ionaș is facing a fight greater than him. Realizing that he is just a simple man, Ionaș wins the battle, but not the war, as he cannot stand against something as small as sleep, but as big as time.
