Who Owns the Clouds?

Mario Brassard & Gérard DuBois

Mila remembers the day she woke up to find that she and her family had to join a line and flee from
threatening clouds of smoke, along an endless road. Years later, now an adult, Mila still fears lining up, and her gaze lingers on those clouds in the sky that are darker than others…
