Synopsis

 

Like a western, it starts with an escape.

Five teenagers violently escape a reform school in an Argentinean prov- ince. They travel by foot, across hills, a hundred kilometres, for the prom- ise of a new home. They carry a few supplies and a shotgun. They hunt to feed, rob the homes they pass,get high, bath in the river, fight with each other and make love: Their trip is an evolutionary voyage into the wilder- ness, one that soon becomes a mystic fable about courage and grace.
