Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
At the same time the last of the free Plains tribes in North America were being herded onto reservations, the Argentinians were similarly engaged on the plains Patagonia. In this drama, set in 1880, a colonel in the Argentine army has come to this remote region with his aristocratic French wife in the hopes of making his fortune while opening this land to European exploitation. The harsh and greedy nature of the conquerers is clearly shown as they oppress everyone in sight, including their own people. One story involves the ultimately unsuccessful efforts of the colonel's wife to repatriate a French girl who has spent the past ten years among the Indians.
