Ernesto is a respected hunting guide in Patagonia, where he lives with his new family. After his previous wife dies, he is forced to house his teenage son Nahuel, whom he hasn’t seen for more than a decade.
Confronted with the past he left behind, Ernesto struggles to contain the violent outbursts of his son. Without the sympathy of his new family, Nahuel stretches the conflict with his father to a limit.
In the hostility of nature, resentment gives way in to a possible relationship between these two men. The reunion will confront them with their own hability to kill and forgive.
