For decades, aging Spaniard Antonio (Richard Dreyfuss) has been living in a small village in the French Guiana jungle, coexisting with the nearby natives. Antonio likes to read seedy romance novels, bickers with the village's mayor, Luis (Timothy Spall), and starts a relationship with local bartender Josefina (Cathy Tyson). But his quiet life is interrupted when a vicious jaguar begins to stalk the villagers. Antonio then volunteers to hunt down the majestic animal.
