The film is partly a detailed chronicle of the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo from their beginnings in 1977 through to 2000, and their tireless work searching for their grandchildren. But it is also a document of the recent reunions, from both the grandmothers' and the grandchildren's perspectives."

When school teacher Harriet Winslow (Jane Fonda) goes to Mexico to teach, she is kidnapped by Gen. Tomas Arroyo (Jimmy Smits) & his revolutionaries. An aging American, Ambrose "Old Gringo" Bierce (Gregory Peck) also in Mexico, befriends Gen. Arroyo & meets Harriet. Bierce is a famous writer, who knowing that he is dying, wishes to keep his identity secret so he can determine his own fate. Though he likes Arroyo, Bierce tries to provoke the General's anger whenever possible in an attempt to get himself killed, thus avoiding suffering through his illness. Winslow is intrigued by both Bierce and Arroyo, and the men are in turn attracted to her. She becomes romantically involved with Arroyo. When Winslow learns of Bierce's true identity (a writer whose work she has loved and respected for years), she is single mindedly determined to fulfill his dying wish.--E.W. DesMarais
