    • Synopsis
    • Héctor, a 25-year- old pawn, awakes in the Iberá Wetlands. When he regain consciousness, he realizes that Tomás (8), his bosse’s son, is gone. Instead, Héctor meets Quiroz, a strange gaucho who promise him to help him find the kid in exchange of the cattle.

      Meanwhile, Suarez y Ale, two rustlers who are also interested in the cattle, chased them and burn the area in order to corner them.

      As Héctor follows Quiroz through the estuaries, he experiences the magic nature of the place -islands of jungles and pastures that float and move all time-, and assumes himself as the mythical “Gauchito Gil”, a local Robin Hood.
