In a remote stretch of Patagonia, Argentina, there is an over 100-year-old community that speaks Afrikaans - a language only spoken in South Africa. After the destruction of a war with the British, these Boers - descendants of Dutch settlers - sailed across the ocean to start a new life. Today, only a few dozen still speak the language and they are struggling to keep their culture alive. The film is a portrait of this community and one family's longing to reconnect with South Africa.
