Vargas, a 50-something man, leaves prison in Corrientes, Argentina. Once he is freed, he is determined to find his daughter, now a grown woman, who lives in a remote area surrounded by swamps. To get there, he has to travel great distances in a small boat on the rivers, and wander deep into the wild jungle. Vargas is a quiet man, with a restraint that characterizes those who live close to nature and according to its laws. He and the reason for his many years of imprisonment are shrouded in mystery.
