After a ten-year absence, Severino returns to his tribe, the
Manzaneros, who live on the edge of the Argentinean Andes. However, in
his home village, Severino encounters a tense and troubled situation
caused by a gang that tries to agitate Indians and settlers against
each other. Severino tries to mediate between the hostile parties. The
intransigent Chief Nicolas refuses to relinquish his war plans. In his
eyes, Severino is a traitor deserving of death.
