       Columnas de Humo se sitúa en el Montevideo de Uruguay de 1857, durante uno de los sucesos menos sonados, pero aún presentes en la memoria de la ciudad: la epidemia de fiebre amarilla. A partir de la llegada de la fiebre, la desagregación progresiva de las estructuras institucionales lleva la ciudad al caos. Junto a la epidemia, llega a Montevideo el indio charrúa Ventura Meléndez, nacido el día del genocidio de su raza y criado entre blancos. Meléndez ha tomado los hábitos religiosos, pero lucha entre el amor a Dios y el odio al hombre blanco, que ha exterminado a su pueblo. Se sitúa como profeta y anuncia ante el pueblo y las autoridades de gobierno que Dios vengará la matanza de la nación charrúa, utilizando la fiebre amarilla para aniquilar a los habitantes de la ciudad.

Columnas de Humo takes place in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1857, during a little known event still present in the city's memory: the yellow fever epidemic. The city's infrastructure progressively unravels with the onslaught of the fever until chaos reigns. At the same time, a Charrúa indigenous man named Ventura Meléndez arrives in Montevideo. Born on the day his people were exterminated through genocide and raised among white people, Meléndez has become a priest. Yet he is torn between love for God and hatred for the white men who annihilated his people. Meléndez sets himself up as a prophet and announces to the people and government authorities of Montevideo that God is using the yellow fever to avenge the massacre of the Charrúa nation, and the entire city will be destroyed.
