Alvarito a blind marathon runner and the intellectual Dr. Villafañe are lost in the vast and desolate pampas. One, due to his physical disability, the other on account of a mental problem. Because mind and body are one, the two set out on a personal quest that will become a team effort as they embark on an epic adventure across the pampas. One, seeking to reach his goal, the other trying to find the present, but both longing to find themselves.
Alvarito, un maratonista ciego, y el Dr. Vilafañe, se han perdido en un inmensa  y desolada pampa. Uno por causas físicas, el otro por causas mentales. Cuerpo y razón no viven separados, por lo que emprenden una búsqueda personal que se vuelve conjunta. Así compartirán un épico cruce de la pampa. Uno en busca de la META, el otro en busca del PRESENTE. Ambos para encontrarse a sí mismos.
