Synopsis:
In northeastern Argentina, in Misiones, Pierre is mandated by a multinational corporation to manage forest cutting and the fir plantations. Mad about rugby, he coaches the local youth rugby team : « The Capybaras ». In his work, Pierre has no qualms. He cuts, burns and pours toxic agrochemicals into the fertile soil to increase productivity. In Misiones, no one counts anymore the babies born with malformations, the cancers and the mentally retarded children that come from the use of toxic agrochemicals. A protest movement spreads among the people. Pierre must confront desertions by some of his own workers. Also, Pierre is in love with Ana, a young militant teacher who makes the people’s cause her own. Cornered, Pierre no longer has a choice, he has to choose sides.
