Making use of the circulation and superposition of narratives, In they come revolves around the idea of promise and the emotional mechanisms attached to it. The film explores the temporal and psychological aspects of waiting, taking the meteorological phenomena and the animal as central subjects.

A voice talks about the times of the “Special Period” in Cuba (a prolonged period of economic crisis which began in 1989 after the dissolution of the Soviet Union) while a pigeon awaits, stoically, the arrival of Matthew’s hurricane to the island. Despite the authorities announcing his arrival every day, seems it will never arrive.
