1879: 1,500 men walk South into the Patagonian desert under the orders of General Roca. They are convinced they’re part of the creation of the Argentine Nation, conquering its territory and forging its identity. They go deep into Southern nothingness, and hope to bring civilization along with them. A hundred years later, in 1980, the military junta organizes a National History Congress in the city of General Roca, to celebrate the hundred years of this so called “Conquest of the Desert”.
