“Everything is going well in Chile, better than well” announces a voice on the radio.
George Washington Caucamán is a mapuche Indian who worked as a rural detective in Patagonia where he led a good life, away from the corruption of the city and the Chilean regime. One day he injures the son of an important General and his luck changes. As punishment, he is sent to the capital city, Santiago, where he feels suffocated and uncomfortable.
George Washington Caucamán, aided by his only friend in Santiago (a taxi driver), starts investigating a “hot line” case where he is finally forced to face the reality of his country and who, in fact, is in charge.
Everything is not going well in Chile after all.
