An old man named Vargas is released from prison. Seemingly anxious to get lost, Vargas buys a canoe and heads downriver. He methodically relieves himself of clothing and money along the way, allowing the jungle to reclaim him. Filmmaker Lisandro Alonso refuses to explain his themes and metaphors--the isolation of the Argentine jungle; the path from guilt to absolution; the reintegration into civilization by an ex-criminal--preferring his audiences to luxuriate in the sensual sights and vivid sounds of the tropics. Alonso, one of the most talented and distinct voices of Argentinian cinema, boldly explores an inner world that is revealed through nature.
