Synopsis

Buenos Aires sous la dictature militaire en 1977. Francisco Sanctis est un modeste employé et un père de famille sans histoire qui se tient prudemment à distance de la politique et des polémiques. Mais une amie perdue de vue lui demande de prévenir deux hommes qu'ils sont sur le point d'être enlevés par un escadron de la mort. Il est face à un choix : prendre des risques pour sauver des inconnus ou ne rien faire pour protéger sa vie et celle de ses proches.

The writing team of Nava and Thomas split the story into three parts: Arturo Xuncax: The first part takes place in a small rural Guatemalan village called San Pedro and introduces the Xuncax family, a group of indigenous Mayans. Arturo is a coffee picker and his wife a homemaker. Arturo explains to his son, Enrique, his world view and how the indio fares in Guatemalan life, noting that, "to the rich, the peasant is just a pair of strong arms". Arturo and his family then discuss the possibility of going to the United States where "all the people, even the poor, own their own cars". Because of his attempts to form a labor union among the workers, Arturo and the other organizers are attacked and murdered by government troops when a co-worker is bribed to betray them—Arturo's severed head is seen hanging from a tree. When Enrique attempts to climb the tree that displays his father's head, a soldier attacks him. Enrique fights and kills the attacker, only to learn that many of their fellow villagers have been rounded up by soldiers. The children's mother too "disappears": abducted by soldiers. So, using money given to them by their godmother, Enrique and his sister Rosa decide to flee Guatemala, the land of their birth, and head north.

Après la Révolution cubaine, la gloire et la puissance du Che sont au plus haut. En témoigne sa harangue enflammée aux Nations unies, réitérant son engagement dans le combat du tiers-monde contre l'impérialisme américain. Plus qu'un soldat, le Che est devenu une figure glamour de la scène internationale. Mais, soudain, voilà qu'il disparaît. Pourquoi a t-il quitté Cuba ? Vers quelle destination ? Est-il seulement en vie ? Le Che réapparaît en Bolivie, incognito et méconnaissable, œuvrant clandestinement à la constitution d'un petit groupe de camarades cubains et de recrues boliviennes censé amorcer la grande révolution latino-américaine. La campagne bolivienne est une ode à sa tenacité et à son sens du sacrifice. Elle nous permet de comprendre pourquoi le Che reste un symbole universel d'héroïsme et d'idéalisme. Son échec entraînera la mort du Che.

Jack accepts, eventually winning over the people and even the dead president's mistress, Madonna (Braga).

The story takes place entirely during a few months in 1970, in the city of São Paulo. Mauro, a 12-year-old boy, is suddenly deprived of the company of his young parents, Bia and Daniel Stein, who are political activists on the run from the harsh military government, which was strongly repressing leftists all over the country. Against this backdrop of fear and political persecution, the country is at the same time bursting with enthusiasm for the coming World Cup, to be held in Mexico, the first one to be transmitted live via satellite.
