Director Statement:
I discovered a place called Punta Indio surrounded by fields, mountains and swamps, and located next to a river. A few years back I started visiting it and paying attention to the stories inherent to that small lawless town. With this premise and western feeling in mind I got together with Anne-Sophie Vignolles and started writing this story.
