The Third Side of the River
17 year old Nicolas lives with his family in the small town of Entre Ríos. From the outside the family looks like a picture of normality and happiness, but in reality his father Jorge leads a double life with two separate families on opposite sides of town. As our stoically silent protagonist moves into adulthood, Jorge tries to get him to follow in his footsteps as a doctor and an agronomist. But because of his father's display of irresponsibility and immorality, Nicolas' resentment for Jorge grows - and so does the tension between the two of them.
