A 54 year old man gets out of jail in the Province of Corrientes, Argentina. Once released, he wants to find his now adult daughter who lives in a swampy and remote area. To get there, he must cross great distances in a small boat on the rivers scoring deep in the jungle. Vargas is a quiet and self-contained man, he possesses the restraint of those living close to nature. A deep mystery surrounds him, the people he encounters and that places he comes by, that takes in the unalterable world he finds almost unchanged after his long years of incarceration.

Excerpt from the press:

The slow-moving minimalism of new Argentine cinema finds its poet and master in Lisandro Alonso, whose mysterious journey upriver in "Los Muertos" follows very similar lines to his feature bow, "Freedom." This elegantly concise work, which certainly induces a meditative mood, will confirm Alonso's unusual talent for a limited circle of admirers, but will need special handling and critical support to reach the larger arthouse crowd....
