Fernando, a 36 year old naval officer, arrives from southern Argentina to work in an oil tanker that connects Rosario and Buenos Aires. But his trip seems to hide other motives: as he begins an intense relationship with young Brazilian Melissa in Rosario, he also has sexual encounters in Buenos Aires with his Spanish ex-girlfriend Gabriela, even after she becomes pregnant with her husband’s child. While Melissa is expecting Fernando’s child, his double life starts to disintegrate into obsession and violence. He desperately seeks Gabriela’s house among the islands of Tigre’s delta. Blood will soon run through the brown rivers.
