The film follows a day in the life of a couple living in a cabin nestled deep within the Andes mountain range in Colombia. They begin their day as usual, but something seems strange to the woman. A fearsome group of men awaits them. An atmosphere of dread develops gradually through the sounds and silences, a looming landscape and the threatening visions of wild animals observing the main characters from the distance.
