Synopsis

Raúl (Hugo Nogueira) lives in an isolated house amid the vast solitude of the Pampa fields. Beset by the harsh local economic conditions, in the dark nights he joins a posse of peasants to steal cattle. Upon returning at dawn, he finds his house empty: his wife and children have disappeared. A landscape underexplored by Brazilian cinema serves as a backdrop for a human drama directly connected to its socio-economic context, in a harsh portrait of the paradigm shift of life in Brazil’s hinterlands. (E. V.)
