A young man's father, close to death, reveals to his son the true story of his grandfather's death, or at least the truth as he knows it. The mean old gaucho was murdered by some fellow villagers in Garopaba, a sleepy town on the Atlantic now famous for its surfing and fishing. It was almost an execution, vigilante style. Or so the story goes.

A young man wakes up at dawn to drive to the Andes, to climb the Cerro Bonete - a mountain untouched by ice axes and climbers, one of the planet's final mountains to be conquered - as an act of heroic bravado - or foolishness. But instead he finds himself dragged by the undertow of memory to Esplanada, the neighborhood he grew up in, to the brotherhood of his old friends, and to the clearing in the woods where he witnessed an act that has run like a scar through the rest of his life.
