This story inspired Juan José Campanella's movie, 2010 Oscar winner in the foreign film category. Set in the Argentina of the 1960s and 70s, the detective story takes place at a time where the country begins a gradual descent into political violence and unrest, and its characters fight against impunity, the bureaucracy of the judicial system, and personal and shared miseries. Thirty years before, a homicide case crossed Benjamín Chaparro's desk, one he was unable to forget. Now retired, he reviews a large portion of his life, the instances of the case and the unsuspected consequences, and the story of a forbidden love that keeps him trapped between passion and silence.
