Thirteen-year-old Mora lives in an isolated part of the Patagonian steppes alongside her younger brother and her parents, Italian ecologists determined to be self-sufficient in this vast, almost mythic land. A victim of bullying at her school, Mora would much rather spend her time with Nazareno, an elderly Mapuche who teaches her all she needs to know about life here. Mora identifies strongly with the culture of the gaucho and dreams of becoming one. Mora embarks on a journey across this imposing land with her little brother when Nazareno disappears while searching for his lost horse Zahorí.

Mora, de 13 años, vive en un lugar aislado de las estepas patagónicas junto a su hermano menor y sus padres, ecologistas italianos decididos a ser autosuficientes en estas vastas y casi míticas tierras. Mora, víctima de acoso escolar, preferiría pasar su tiempo con Nazareno, un mapuche anciano que le enseña todo lo que necesita saber sobre la vida aquí. Mora se identifica fuertemente con la cultura del gaucho y sueña con ser uno. Cuando Nazareno desaparece en busca de su caballo perdido Zahorí, Mora emprende un viaje por esta imponente tierra con su hermano menor.
