Al Desierto A kidnapping is the beginning of a particular bond between two marginal lives in a remote location.

San Sebastian Film Festival and Mar del Plata IFF "International Competition"

Julia, a casino employee from Comodoro Rivadavia, is tempted by Gwynfor, a Welsh descendant, who promises her an administrative position at the oil company where he works. When she realizes the deceit they are already immersed in the desert and will begin an arduous crossing on foot by the Patagonian plateau. Hunting, taking refuge in caves and abandoned buildings, with no possibility of escape in the midst of infinite distances, the difficult coexistence will be transformed with every passing day. In a van, on horseback, guided by trackers, Commissar Hermes Prieto will go after them, sure to find some trace in the middle of the desert.
