A hypnotic thriller about a lawyer whose orderly life slowly goes off the rails.
A boring little town in Argentina in the mid-1970s: while an unprecedented wave of political violence sweeps the country, here it's life and business as usual. The respected lawyer Dario leads a quiet life with his wife and daughter – until one evening he has a disagreement with a stranger in a restaurant. The next day, Dario has forgotten all about the incident. Then a private detective turns up and starts asking unpleasant questions.
