A puma is stalking Pueblo Nación Ranquel. Hunting is a rite of passage, and the older boys want to kill it. But Uriel decides otherwise. La vida en común was filmed in the indigenous community of San Luis. The provincial authorities built twentyfour concrete tents in the middle of the desert. A modern camp to where the ranquel communities moved to from the neighboring cities. It is the origin of a community; of the scenery that also plays a character in the film.
