They wanted to be part of a youth movement – and became right-wing terrorists. An intense political thriller linking Chilean history to the present and illustrating how fascistic structures have survived. At the beginning of the 1970s, the streets of the Chilean capital were seething and in the underground the extremist group »Patria y Libertad« was working on overthrowing the elected present Salvador Allende. Attracted by the fascist couple Inés and Justo, Gerado joins the paramilitaries. A community of fate is born from which none of the three can escape – not even 40 years later.
