Untamed Bones

In 1520 was discovered the Island of Tierra del Fuego, located to the south of the American continent and separated by the Straits of Magellan, it extends in thousands of kilometers the steppe of wind and solitude.
In these lands, fragments of animal bones are scattered all over the landscape, either because they have died predatory or because of illness or old age, being exposed to the passage of time.
These are the memories of another time, of a Patagonia that no longer exists and in which we find history turned into bone.
From there, it is that a story is opened where the passage of life is one that is chosen and that rises every day until becoming death, in this territory at the end of the world. At the end of time.
Through the stories of Ivo Robertson, a renowned ranch owner of the region of 74 years, his son John and his foreman Julio, is that a perspective of death is completed by Magellanic men who only fear a death far from their work of Field and its southern lands.
