Synopsis: 

Zona Franca is a vast old-fashioned commercial area in the heart of the Chilean province located near the Strait of Magellan. This former original territory, now mirroring our mercantile society, attracts numerous tourists looking for the end of the world. However, a truck driver, a gold miner and a young security guard resist. The deeply rooted violence of this area suddenly reappears when a strike paralyses the region.
