The perseverance and suffering in the life and works of the explorer, filmmaker, and photographer Alberto De Agostini (1883-1960) are arbitrarily reinvented. Having left his village in Piemonte to become a missionary, he reached Tierra del Fuego in 1910. He scaled mountains and discovered fjords and glaciers. On encountering the pain of the destruction of the last Indio natives, he expressed these feelings through the frames of his film "Terre Magellaniche." All of this ends up as an imaginary repository of memories amongst the hoarded remains of 'white civilization,' in which two kids rummage around in search of traces of the artist. The Indio people, ever-present ghosts, accompany them in remembering their elimination and that of a nature and a land stolen from them by colonizers.
