LA RABIA – DIE WUT

Poldo, a farmer in the Argentine pampas, breaks off all contact with Pichón because he believes that he has insulted little Nati, his mute daughter. Poldo also forbids his wife to see Pichón, not suspecting that she and the man are carrying on a passionate affair behind his back. Nati knows what’s going on, as does Pichón’s son, her only friend.
