Ricardo Darin stars in the lead role as Esteban Espinosa a taxidermist by profession who secretly harbors a dream of committing the perfect robbery. When an opportunity presents itself to fulfil his dreams on a hunting trip in a Patagonian forest he becomes embroiled in a world of complex new rules and terrifying violence.

Not only does his inexperience endanger his life but he also suffers from epilepsy and strangely before each random seizure he is visited by the "aura": a paradoxical moment of confusion and enlightenment where the past and the future seemingly merge and leave him vulnerable.
