The Winter Vault

Egypt, 1964. The temple at Abu Simbel must be rescued from the rising waters of the Aswan Dam. This most daunting of tasks is overseen by Avery, a young engineer who at the same time is joyfully constructing a shared life with his new wife, Jean. Weaving historical moments with the quiet intimacy of human lives, THE WINTER VAULT tells of the ways in which we salvage what we can from the violence of life. It is the story of a husband and a wife trying to find their way back to each other; of people and nations displaced and uprooted and of the myriad means by which we all seek out a place we can call home.
