THE RETURN OF MR. ROQUE THIELEN
TO THE ISLAND OF AKARE-MERÚ

Roque vuelve a la selva amazónica para dejar de beber y reconstruir el campamento turístico que abandonó hace diez años. Pero cuando se encuentra sin los medios para sobrevivir, se une a la operación de minería de oro ilegal de un viejo amigo. A medida que sucumbe al mundo corrupto en torno a él, Roque bebe de nuevo e insulta a la mujer de un hombre peligroso que lo persigue hasta la selva con fines de matarlo.

Following the economic collapse of Venezuela, Roque sets out to the Amazon in hopes of finding a sanctuary for a new attempt to get sober, and an opportunity for work by rebuilding the tourist lodge he was forced to abandon 12 years earlier. Upon arrival, he finds the lodge in complete disrepair, and the surrounding indigenous community now corrupted by nearby illegal gold mining.

With his means to survive and rebuild depleted, Roque seeks an easy solution in an old friend’s offer to join his mining operation. As Roque quickly succumbs to the corruption around him, his actions ultimately lead to two choices: die by the hands of the people he wronged, or escape through the jungle to find a new start elsewhere.
