Understanding the clouds, their shapes, colors, and composition, is to understand the weather. The film sheds light on the secrets of the water cycle and atmospheric phenomena: violent storms, floods, hail and snow. What we learn may even push aside generally accepted ideas... Predicting the weather is the challenge of meteorology.
