Summary Documentary that masterfully explores the significance of water in Chile's vast history and culture, examining the indigenous tribes of the western Patagonian waterways and the tragic journey of Jemmy Button, who in 1830 was bought by the English navy for the price of a mother of pearl button. The film ends by discussing how Pinochet's forces used waterways to dump the bodies of disappeared persons that they had executed.
