Ernesto is a respected hunting guide who lives in Patagonia with his new family. After the loss of his first wife, he is forced to house his teenage son, Nahuel, whom he has not seen for more than a decade. Confronted with the past he left behind, Ernesto struggles to contain the violent outbursts of his son. In the hostility of nature, resentment will give way to a possible relationship between the two. Their reunion will confront them with their own ability to kill and forgive.
