In the town of El Idilio, buried deep in the jungle on the bank of a small Amazon tributary, lives 60 year old Antonio Bolivar (Richard Dreyfuss). Antonio has lived most of his life in the jungle and knows it intimately. A recluse, he has discovered a quiet passion for romantic tales, which he reads with great appetite. He shares this preoccupation with a local servant girl, Josefina (Cathy Tyson), and together, through their common interest, they are falling in love. The visiting Dentist (Hugo Weaving), a swaggering lothario with questionable medical skills, becomes Antonio's confidant, procuring romantic novels and encouraging Antonio's advances toward Josefina.
