New Directors Competition
Jimena travels to Río Grande, on the island of Tierra del Fuego, the extreme south of Argentina, on a quest to join her half-brother Mariano. She has almost no money for her ticket but manages to finally arrive there, with the hope she will do better in that manufacturing region. The wind, the cold and the complex economic crisis form the background in which Jimena will develop her empathy and sense of belonging with regards to the people around her, as well as where she will learn to acknowledge and finally accept herself.
