Now a major motion picture, this is a story of obsession, loyalty, and control as one man with dark intentions charms his way into the lives of an innocent, unsuspecting family, based on the true exile of Nazi doctor Josef Mengele to South America Patagonia, 1960. Jose is on the run. Having fled from his homeland of Germany, he has come to South America to continue his work as a doctor seeking to manipulate genes to create the perfect human race. In the small village of Chacharramendi he meets Lilith, a child he first notices from the balcony of his motel who instantly fascinates yet repulses him. Lilith has a growth defect, and the disproportionate size of her features represents all that Jose is trying to exterminate from humankind. Yet, even more intriguing is the fact that her siblings are perfect examples of the Aryan race: tall, strongly built, and fair. The anomaly of Lilith's existence enthralls Jose and when he discovers Lilith's mother is pregnant, the temptation to involve himself in their lives and even interfere with the pregnancy is too much for him to pass up. A cold, calculating, but eerily charming man, Jose befriends Lilith and manipulates his way into the family. And so begins a dark relationship between the doctor and the little girl, a kind of love that cannot end well. For Jose is actually Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, infamous for performing human experiments at Auschwitz, and sooner or later his past is going to catch up with him

A pesar de los diversos esfuerzos de su madre, Pepino no pasó de ser un extra suplente de Señorita maestra. El programa que se había convertido en una esperanza, la de una televisión que educara y entretuviera al mismo tiempo, fue un éxito que condenó a sus integrantes con una maldición. Treinta años después, Pepino sigue atado a su pasado, del cual parece poder librarse al conocer a Twiggy, una joven de clase alta con problemas psiquiátricos y que comparte con él una truncada carrera en el mundo del espectáculo. Sin embargo, después del encuentro con Abel Santa Cruz, guionista del programa y a cuyo entierro Pepino había asistido, su vida volverá a estar en manos del Autor que podría cambiar su destino. El relato oscila entre infancia y presente, realidad y ficción, para dar lugar a una narración ágil que se apropia de los guiños a la cultura pop, en especial de su aspecto más ruin. Sin dejar de lado el humor, la tercera novela de Lucía Puenzo retoma una mirada sobre lo siniestro (presente en toda su obra) de las relaciones de poder entre padres e hijos, personajes y autor, y el modo en que la televisión arroja a sus criaturas cuando ya no las necesita
