In the midst of the stunning mountain ranges of Patagonia is an almost mythical community of Welsh natives, born of settlers who landed there in the late 1800s. Snow Cake director Marc Evans incorporates the culture and countryside of both countries to tell the tales of two women. In Cardiff, Gwen and husband Rhys have felt significant strain on their relationship since they have been unable to conceive a child. When Rhys is sent on a photographic project to Patagonia, Gwen sees a chance to repair their relationship with a bit of escapism. In Patagonia, elderly Argentinean Cerys is starting a pilgrimage to the Welsh countryside that was once her mother’s home. Her nephew Alejandro is along as chaperone, and unexpectedly discovers a possible future of his own with a seductive Welsh girl (pop singer Duffy). Gwen's quest for meaning in her family's future leads to unwelcome adventure, while Cerys's search for the truth about her heritage produces no easy answers. Together, their stories make Patagonia a film of intimate moments played out against sweeping panoramic landscapes.
