Delia, a young woman living in a slum in Caracas, Venezuela, struggles to rebuild a life for herself, her mother and her two teenage sons. They are survivors of the Vargas tragedy, a flood that killed tens of thousands of people, including Delia’s daughter, in the Vargas state of Venezuela in 1999. The sound of rumbling stones that preceded the tragedy is one of their most vivid and terrifying memories. Delia now faces a new crisis as her sons start to get involved in gangs and crime.A heartfelt and compelling portrait of the enduring power of a mother’s love against the backdrop of the real social problems of modern day Venezuela, The Rumble of Stones features powerful performances by Rossana Fernández as Delia, and Cristian González and Juan Carlos Nuñez as her two sons. It has won numerous awards, including Best Picture at the 2011 Festival del Cine Venezolano.The Rumble of the Stones is Venezuela’s official submission for the 2011 Academy Awards®.
