Evans, the old foreman at an estancia in Patagonia receives a new group of workers who come to participate in the shearing season. Within the group of laborers, Jara, a young man from the northeastern part of Argentina, stands out. The owners of the estancia see him as a possible new foreman. When the season's work comes to an end, Evans' worst fears come true: after a lifetime of dedication to that work and place he is fired from the estancia and replaced by Jara. The change won't be easy for either of them and each one must find their own way to survive the coming winter.
