In a remote outpost of 18th century South America, a Spanish Officer waits in vain for a letter from the King granting him a transfer to Buenos Aires. Entrusted with a series of humiliating tasks by successive Governors, as the years pass he begins to lose a grip on reality. Stunningly photographed and imbued with a sense of the absurd, this richly atmospheric film transports us into the dark heart of colonial South America.
