A group of cousins decide to hold a reunion after years of not seeing each other. When Roberto, the host and director of a successful NGO, gets involved in the strange murder of a young woman, consternation and violence erupt among guests. What should have been a cozy family gathering turns into an increasingly dire situation – which does not improve in the slightest when some attendees bring up unexpected ideas and conflicts that set them against each other and give rise to enmity.
Donde Viven Los Bárbaros (in English, Where the Barbarians Live) investigates how violence in human relations is normalized and tolerated in Chile today, and how the archetype of the enemy has been present in our stories since the dawn of time.
