Synopsis

Manena is the headstrong adolescent daughter of Pancho, a rich Chilean landowner who devotes his vacation to one thing : the invasion of his artificial lagoon by carps. While he employs increasingly radical methods, Manena has her first romantic experiences and hearbreak – and discovers a silent world in the shadow of her own : that of the Mapuche Indians who demand access to the land and clash with her father.
