Chile, 1901. An influential landowner entrusts three mercenaries with the task of prospecting newly acquired territory. Under the orders of a bloodthirsty veteran of the British army, the journey quickly takes the direction of ethnic cleansing, with the indigenous Onas tribe facing a genocide foretold. Skilfully playing with the codes of the Western, this harsh and intense historical drama denounces a colonial society built on the massacre of local populations, while providing a pure moment of cinema.
