An existential murder mystery in the Amazon jungle.


Deep in the Amazon jungle, Chino works as a transporter for an illegal gold mining organization, but consumed by one thing: finding the snake that killed his dog.
Together with Poálo, his partner, Chino sets up traps for the snake along the banks of the river. When he finds the body of an American in one of his traps, alarm bells go off within the mining organization. Chino fights to maintain his autonomy, but his strings are pulled more and more.

Chino continues to hunt the anaconda, but who is hunting who?

He suddenly finds himself drowning in a dead end, his only option is to go through that organization from start to finish.
