This feature film debut reminds the viewer of one of the darkest chapters of Peru's recent history. In the late 1980s, reporters followed a lead and discovered a large organized illegal child trade. Georgina's child is kidnapped shortly after its birth at a fake health clinic. Desperate to be reunited with her child, she implores a major newspaper to help her and finds an ally in an isolated journalist.
