Two detectives from Buenos Aires, Mosca and Maia, come to a small town in Patagonia, at “the end of the world”. What is commonly known as Antarctica. They meet Joel, the suspect of an apparently common bank robbery case, who can’t recall his own name and keeps drawing confusing symbols pointing towards “the South”. They immediately acknowledge that something far more intriguing is at play here. As they’ll drive towards Antarctica, they’ll uncover secrets kept hidden for hundreds of years, holding the future of human kind at stake.
