Pieces of memory reconstruct a story. A fact from the past reveals in fragments connected by a voice over telling one of the many tales of the last argentinian military dictatorship in a way that was never told before. Film images collected back then, come back now to the screen to reveal some of the mystery of a disappearance and give a body to the
abstract and invisible present
