The time is the present and the place, a country that has given itself a democratic government just after a long period of dictatorship.


Double Feature Flyer

Paulina Salas is a former political prisoner living in an isolated beach house with her husband, Gerardo. The repressive regime of the past two decades has fallen and the transition to democracy has just begun. When Gerardo returns from a business trip he brings home Dr. Miranda, who he met by chance. Convinced that Miranda is the same doctor who tortured her while she was imprisoned under the dictatorship, Paulina takes him captive and puts him on trial in their living room for his crimes. In this political thriller the only thing more elusive than the truth is forgiveness. Everyone must confront the demons of their past and the uncertainty of their future under a new regime.
