El Turu (Valenzuela) is the fiery captain of a boat that links the remote communities of traditional reed cutters in the Parana Delta of Northern Argentina. He bullies one of the workers, Alvaro (Román) as much for his love of books as for his homosexuality. A fine portrait of both the watery landscape and the sequestered lives of its inhabitants.
