In 1993, while democracy is trying to settle in Latin America, a man flees through the forest of Uruguay and seeks help in a police station. He identifies himself as a Chilean who was held prisoner. Then he disappears. Julia, the judge in charge of the case, soon discovers that the police are trying to erase its traces and that the man who vanished was the former chemist in Pinochet’s secret police. She must also face her own father and brother, who have decided to divert her from the path leading to the truth. Uruguay/Chile/Argentina 0 Regie: Esteban Schroeder 97 min, 35mm, Farbe, OF mit engl.
