Three years after the military coup in Chile, a doctor’s wife, Carmen, is asked by the family priest to care for a wounded young man he is hiding.
Her comfortable, middle-class life is thrust into disarray, as the revolutionary she is nursing back to health opens her eyes to the reality of the brutal Pinochet dictatorship under which they live.
The feature debut from Manuela Martelli, it’s an eye-opening, tense and quietly moving film.
