Synopsis:

Five teenagers violently escape a reform school in an Argentinean province. They travel by foot, across hills, a hundred kilometres, for the promise of a new home. They carry a few supplies and a shotgun. They hunt to feed, rob the homes they pass, get high, bath in the river, fight with each other and make love: their trip soon becomes a mystic fable about courage and grace.
