Synopsis

Nahuel is a violent teenager from Buenos Aires. When his mother dies after enduring lengthy treatment for an illness, he leaves home to travel south to Patagonia in order to spend three months with his father Ernesto, a hunter who lives in isolation in the mountains with his new family. The two have not seen each other in over a decade, and are linked by their rancour. But, like the snow around them, ill-feeling slowly fades away as Ernesto teaches Nahuel the skills he needs to live in the harsh environment. Between parties with local friends and silent hunting journeys with his father’s team, Nahuel finally understands the reason for his trip.
