A muleteer and more than one thousand sheep cross mountains and rivers to reach the heart of the Andes. Once at the top, in a a small flooded valley, the muleteer feels the loneliness and the passage of time marked only by daily tasks. Gradually he begins to get lost in the mountains as his dreams appear to him as ghosts. The 16mm poetic portrait of a lone worker that takes reference from westerns and silent films.
