Masterfully explores the significance of water in Chile's vast history and culture, examining the indigenous tribes of the Western Patagonian waterways and the tragic journey of Jemmy Button, who in 1830 was bought by the English Navy for the price of a mother-of-pearl button.  Documentarian Patricio Guzman then poetically connects this age of colonialism to Augusto Pinochet's military ditatorship of 1973-90, during which thousands of political dissidents were killed, and helicopters were flown over the Pacific to dump bodies into watery graves.
