Introduction
Montevideo in 1979. Alejandro is a 5-year-old child who lives with his aunt Mariana, a young woman in her thirties. They share a ritual together; listening to and recording audio tapes for his parents who are currently abroad. But a secret underlies the lives of these characters, innocent victims of someone else's war.
