In 1977, Argentina is under the cosh of a brutal military junta. The long night of Francisco Sanctis begins in the car of an old girlfriend whom Francisco hasn't seen for years. She  gives him the names and addresses of two dissidents who are due to be picked up that evening by the police, before probably being tortured. Francisco is supposed to find the two men and warn them. He refuses. He buried his political ideals long ago and isn't interested in risking his own life for others. But he can't ignore the request. All night long, Francisco roams the city, plagued by his conscience and trying to find a solution. Filled with an atmosphere of paranoia and the constant feeling of being watched, the drama gets deep inside a moral conflict.
