Guatemala, 2018. The whole country is immersed in the trial of the soldiers who sparked the civil war. Victim statements come one after another. Ernesto (Armando Espitia) is a young anthropologist working for the Forensic Foundation; his job is to identify the missing. One day, while hearing the account of an old woman, he thinks he has found a lead that might guide him to his father, a guerrillero who went missing during the war. Against the wishes of his mother (Emma Dib), he flings himself body and soul into the case, looking for truth and resilience.
“I am overwhelmed by the strength of the survivors of the Guatemalan genocide,” says director César Díaz. “When one hears what these women went through, one cannot help but think that it would be enough to stifle anyone’s will to live. But they forge ahead. It is a huge life lesson.”
