HYBRID Surviving between the traditional and the modern: an artificial desert city in Argentina is haunted by a puma. A modern tent city of concrete stands like a futuristic foreign body in the inhospitable wasteland of the desert. The local government built the houses and ever since numerous indigenous families have lived in the artificial community of Pueblo Ranquel. But one day the camp is visited by a stray puma and fear spreads through the town. The adolescents decide that the puma must be killed. For them, the hunt is a rite of passage, but Uriel wants to find a different solution.
