Thomas Woodroffe tells us about the choice of the location (a secluded house on the Andean Mountains) he needed as the additional character in the film, which influences and justifies what happens. The rigid surroundings where crucial for the story and also complicated for the shooting and the troupe, giving to the film additional material and sensitivity.

Fiebre Austral: Amanda, a complaisant and lonely woman in her mid-fourties, lives with Daniel, her sixteen-year-old son, in the mountains of southern Chile. Octavio, a friend of Daniel, is accidentally injured while hunting in the forest. Amanda takes over the healing sessions, developing an intimate bond between them. They discover that the contact with the wound produces an addictive pleasure.
