It is set in Danel, a utopian town in the Argentinean Pampas, where all sorts of dropouts, crooks and shady characters escaping their former lives seem to end up or pass through. The arrival of an outsider who has taken on the identity of a dead man disrupts the lives of the locals: Tino, the barman, seeking an opportunity to get away; Silva, determined to make money in every possible way; Perla, who dreams of romance and Brazilian beaches; a legless prostitute; defeated boxers; a gravedigger with a fondness for taxidermy… These weird characters whose pathetic stories intertwine fantasize about a world ofwhich they know nothing, a world that lies beyond the windswept plains of Danel (Ed. Adriana Hidalgo 2007).
