Patagonia, 1960. A German physician meets an Argentinian family and follows them on the long desert road to Bariloche where Eva, Enzo and their three children are going to open a lodging house by the Nahuel Huapi lake. This model family reawakens his obsession with purity and perfection, in particular Lilith, a 12 year-old with a body too small for her age. Unaware of his true identity, they accept him as their first guest. They are gradually won over by the charismatic man, by his elegant manners, his scientific knowledge and his money — until they discover they are living with one of the biggest criminals of the century.



Born in Buenos Aires in 1976, Lucía Puenzo studied literature, film and drama before publishing several novels, The Fish Child (2004), 9 minutos (2005), La maldición de Jacinta Pichimahuida (2007), La furia de la langosta (2010) and Wakolda (2011). Her first feature film, XXY, won the Critics’ Grand Prize in Cannes in 2007. She also directed THE FISH CHILD in 2009.
