Buenos Aires, 1979. People are disappearing right off the street during the so-called "Dirty War." Carolina and her mother Josefina have been searching for their disappeared pregnant daughter/granddaughter, Belén when they receive a surprise visit from a neighborhood priest and then by a soldier. Desperate to find her, they come up with a plan to try to see Belén one last time. If they can. Taut and psychologically nuanced, this political drama shows the strength and resilience of three generations of women in the face of dangerous and unimaginable circumstances.
