Taking place against the magical, vibrant backdrop of Patagonia, Argentina, “SET” is the story of one person’s timeless quest for love, culminating in an epic journey of self-discovery. “SET” is about gaining self-confidence through the mastery of fly-fishing and about finding refuge and comfort in the rugged, natural world.
