High school teacher Alicia (Norma Aleandro) gradually learns that her five-year-old adopted daughter was illegally procured by her government-official husband (Roberto Ibáñez). Knowing their child was stolen by murderous state militiamen during Argentina's military dictatorship (197683), Alicia experiences a political and personal awakening. Finding the girl's natural grandmother helps assuage her guilt in Luis Puenzo's (Old Gringo) soul-tugging tragedyan Oscar winner given a meticulous restoration and supplemented by a four-part interview with its maker.
