Soon after, he is legally forced to spend his last three months before turning eighteen with his father, who he hasn’t seen for over ten years.

His father Ernesto is a highly respected hunter in San Martin de los Andes, a small village near the mountains in southern Argentina. His whole life revolves around hunting. He is a tough and silent man. Nahuel has only a few memories of his early childhood living in the South with his father, and they aren’t really the happiest ones. The journey begins and Nahuel, who is accustomed to urban life, needs to adjust to this new environment, marked by hostility and cruelty, where survival is for the strongest.
