Leonardo Bazan unwittingly witnesses the robbery of a neighboring house. But this wasn't your typical robbery. It was carried out by a well-organized group using sophisticated logistics; and even included a member of the police force.
Yet, more disturbing to Bazan are the memories of a similar crime, witnessed with his parents, that took place in that same house in 1976 during the first years of Argentina's military dictatorship. Having suppressed the traumatic event from his childhood, Bazan sets out to write it down in an attempt to free himself of a past he's been unable to forget or understand. How exactly did he and his parents react and how should he judge those reactions today? How can a decades-old criminal still be in use? And how is it possible that even now people still react with the same level of fear?
