In the prelude to the twentieth century, Pedro arrives in Tierra del Fuego, a violent, unforgiving place, to photograph the wedding of a powerful landowner named Mr Porter. His future wife, still a child, becomes an obsession for Pedro. In an attempt to capture her beauty he betrays the forces of power that dominate these lands. His betrayal is discovered and he is punished. Unable to escape, Pedro is instead forced to become a complicit participant in a new society being, built through the genocide of the Selknam people.
