|Plot Summary of Un Hombre Llamado Piedra Azul (A Man Called Blue Stone)|
Octavio is a middle aged man who starts a journey towards the open areas of Buenos Aires, in his country, Argentina. He drives there because he is a fisherman and he deeply enjoys being in contact with nature.
He has got a Kaiser Carabela, an old fashioned car which adds, in a way, a clearer idea of Octavio's personality. He reaches an island and he has an affair with a helpful man's wife and that event makes him feel like vanishing from that place, being afraid of the possible consequences of what he has done.
Sharing conversations with people from that area, Octavio has got to know a curious story about an indian chief, Calfucurį and discovers that this man has something in common with him.
He decides to look for a place where he wants to find an answer to his many questions about Calfucurį.
