Barbed Wire

by Marco BECHIS

Eva and Juan live with their father, Harvey Logan, in a house surrounded by wasteland a few miles from the Magellan Straits. The wind blows ail the year round, ceaselessly. Eva is a restless 17 year-old, who does not feel the cold, and dreams of living in Paris. She spends her days learning French and listening to a recorded French Language course. Juan is a reserved 13 year-old, who feels the cold, and who is learning the genealogies of the Old Testament by heart in the hope of entering for his favourite TV quiz game that he watches in the village bar. Harvey Logan, a loner, believes in bringing his children up strictly and in total isolation. He makes his living from selling pictures, picture frames, and old English furniture left behind by the early settlers of this area. When a young British businessman, Wilson, arrives in the village, he breaks the monotonous pace of life for the family. He has been encouraged to come here from London by an Argentine engineer, Sanchez, to examine the feasibility of his plan to develop tourism in the area…
