The enthusiasm
A film by Ricardo Larrain

Early 90’s in Chile. Three young adults (Fernando, Isabel and Guillermo), originally united by a childhood friendship and a utopian project, cross the desert in their own way in search of a meaning to their existence, under the gaze of a child and driven by the wind of Fernando’s enthusiasm.
