The southernmost tip of Patagonia, in Argentina, is an eerie place, quite near to the Straits of Magellan and some of the roughest seas in the world. It is a natural location for a resort for adventuresome travelers, and in this drama, a British corporation has bought up land for that purpose. Only one thing stands between the corporation and its plans: a stubborn Irish rancher who won't sell his land for use as an airport. Rather than consider selling to the corporation, he fences in his land and simultaneously fences in his two late-teenaged children, whose burgeoning interest in the world is frustrated by their father's possessive ways. The girl (played by Jacqueline Lustig) is particularly frustrated at this foreclosure of her romantic options.
