by César Diaz

Guatemala, 2018.  As the country lives through the transitional justice trials, Ernesto, a young forensic anthropologist, believes he has found the trail of his father who disappeared during the war and whom he has never known. He plunges headlong in search of the truth, at the risk of unearthing ghosts of times past. In this debut film, awarded at the Cannes Film Festival, César Díaz immerses us in a powerful and masterful work dedicated to "our mothers", those women who have always refused to remain silent. A great filmmaker is born.
