In "Campo del cielo", the largest meteor shower on Earth struck northern Argentina more than four thousand years ago. Hundreds of stories are told about this phenomenon, which seems to have determined the behavior and customs of the people in the area. Like Julio, a boxer who sees the image of an alien when he receives a blow to the head, and Jorgelina, a singer who can not stop singing about zambas and chacareras. And there is Quique, the child who hugs meteorites in the park as if they were his mother. This disturbing and supernatural work is also fragile, tender, civilized, and wild.
