    • Synopsis
    • In a labyrinth of rivers and brooks, a sensual wild world, Alvaro lives a humble and lonely life. Fishing and reed-cutting represent his everyday labour.
      His homosexuality sets him apart in this region of Argentina, a place completely lost in time.
      One single link between this boundless territory and the city exists: “El Leon”. This sailing shuttle has become the one and only way for the inhabitants to communicate.
      It’s piloted every day by El Turu, a violent stiff man, who regards Alvaro’s difference as a threat and seems determined to harass the man. But this violent reject hides a deeper inner turmoil.
