December 1978. Chile and Argentina are within days of starting an armed confrontation on the southern border. In Patagonia, a Chilean patrol accidentally breaks its compass and is lost in the middle of the pampa. They dig their trenches without knowing if it is Chile or Argentina. A long wait begins that will interrupt an Argentine patrol that is installed in front of them. Both wait for the war now, but the tense wait will give way to the friendship that occurs between human beings who are enemies, but who confused by the solitude of the pampa, transit in a fragile line between the duty and the will.
