A man falls from the sky into the water. He makes it safely to shore, but from then on he will find himself in surreal situations, dealing with strange characters, in an apparently inescapable cycle. His travels lead him to the violence of an apocalyptical city which seems to anticipate a tragic destiny for a country immersed in an endless civil war. He will also experience the mythological side of that world, the exoticism of the jungle and its popular legends. A mystery thrown at the audience, presented with astonishing, surreal imagery.
