Set in the pastoral environs of the El Tigre delta north of Buenos Aires, the film follows a group of young actors rehearsing Shakespeare’s As You Like It and engaging in a series of boat rides, dalliances, and games (both literal and romantic). During the rehearsal, the personalities of the main actress and her character overlap in an atmosphere where feelings of uncertainty mix up with the passion for acting.
