It takes place in those two unexplored fields. It is the encounter of an individual with his desires, fears, hates, and pleasures. It is the feature film debut by Brazilian director Martin Rieznik.  It was filmed on the border between Argentina and Brazil in Misiones (Arg) and Rio Grande do Sul (Bra). It is an independent co-production of Vivac Films (Brazil), Africa Studio Visual (Argentina) and Hidalgo Films (Argentina) with the support of the Universidad del Cine ( Argentina).
