Lucas travels to a remote town in southern Chile – near Valdivia – to visit his sister, before going to Canada with a scholarship. He runs away from his parents’ rejection of his sexual condition In front of the ocean and the fog, he meets Antonio, a boatswain in a local fishing boat. When an intense romance grows between them, their strength, their independence and their adulthood become immovable in front of the tide. The spectacular, imposing geography of the Region de los Ríos, with its forests, rivers and the sea is the ideal setting for this story of great tenderness among strong men, of different backgrounds and cultures.
