Alice lives with her younger sisters in a rural Finnish village, in a house their mother build before she passed away. As the new head of the family, she wants to protect her younger sisters and shelter them from the outside world. When the solar storm hits the village it leaves everyone without electricity and puts the community in the middle of a crisis.

Solar Wind Alley was in the official selection of Cinema of the World section at 53rd International Film Festival of India and in the Official Selection of 31st Arizona International Film Festival, USA.
