Argentine 1977: Francisco, a former communist, is given the chance to save two dissidents from the hounds of the military junta. Based on the novel by Humberto Constantini. Since Francisco has become the father of two children, he no longer writes revolutionary poetry. He has traded his subversive ambitions for office work, reliability and subordination. When his old college classmate Elena contacts him under the pretext of republishing one of his poems, Francisco must recalibrate his moral compass. "Understated, minimalist and ultra-smart: The directors suffuse their drama with a sense of paranoia and constant surveillance, chillingly capturing the fear of one man forced into a moral dilemma."
