"El realizador Daivd Blaustein se concentra en el legado de la "guerra sucia" argentina durante los años 1976-83, durante los cuales miles de ciudadanos fueron secuesrados, torturados y asesinados por el gobierno mlitar y sus hijos fueron tomados y dados en adopción a hogares de represores de la extrema derecha. La perseverancia de las abuelas de estos niños creó una fuerza que marchaba sin miedo contra las autoridades en la Plaza de Mayo y es a través de ellas que se creó un banco de datos DNA después de la restauración de la democracia, que ayuda a la identificación de estos chicos y que recupera este "botín de guerra"."--Estuche

"After the fall of the military dictatorship in 1983, successive democratic governments launched a series of reforms purporting to turn Argentina into the world's most liberal and prosperous economy. Less than twenty years later, the Argentinians have lost literally everything: major national companies have been sold well below value to foreign corporations; the proceeds of privatizations have been diverted into the pockets of corrupt officials; revised labour laws have taken away all rights from employees; in a country that is traditionally an important exporter of foodstuffs, malnutrition is widespread; millions of people are unemployed and sinking into poverty; and their savings have disappeared in a final banking collapse. The film highlights numerous political, financial, social and judicial aspects that mark out Argentina's road to ruin."--IMDb.com
