Synopsis

Patagonia is a rough land, and for 52-year-old Juan Villegas, it's even rougher. A mechanic who's just lost his job, Juan tries to make ends meet by selling hand-made knives. One day, after repairing a young woman's car, he is given a most unusual gift: a beautiful Dogo Argentino, a game hound of noble pedigree called 'Bombón'. After initially eyeing each other carefully, Juan welcomes Bombón into his life and with their budding friendship things start taking a remarkable turn for the better.
