In the impoverished and extremely isolated region of Northern Argentina known as "The Impenetrable", the children of a tiny elementary school eagerly await an annual visit from their â€œGodmothersâ€: a charity mission from the city of Buenos Aires. When they arrive, life in the hamlet of Los Pereyra changes completely. Both delighted and bewildered, the children learn many things from their cosmopolitan visitors, including a glimpse of privileged life and, perhaps, a realization of their own poverty. Subtle, sweet, often humorous, but also poignant, A Place Called Los Pereyra examines adolescence, charity and the clash of two worlds.
