This harrowing documentary centers on Argentina's "Dirty War" of the 1970s. It follows a woman named Adriana Lewi on her search to learn what became of her Jewish father and Catholic mother when a U.S.-endorsed crackdown systematically eliminated most students, activists, and other possible revolutionaries from Argentinean society. Old friends at the Israeli inquest uncover that Jews were disproportionately mistreated and tortured during the events, leading to her father's gruesome death by torture.
