Raúl is an unemployed pawn and father. He lives in an isolated home in the solitary immensity of the countryside.
The vast green backdrop, once filled with grass and cattle, now overlaps with enormous soybean plantations. Devastated by poverty and lack of work, Raúl joins other pawns to steal cattle during the dark country nights.
When he returns from yet another theft at dawn, he finds his home empty: his wife and children have disappeared.
