This film portrays the incredible estela de Carlotto from her life as a contented school teacher, wife, and mother to her devastation at the disappearance of her daughter and subsequent abduction of her grandson by the Argentine military, to her political awakening as a leader of the Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo. A profoundly emotional portrait of a woman who transformed her pain into a force for human rights and whose struggle became a symbol in Argentina and around the world.

The compelling story of an ordinary woman who rises up to accomplish something extraordinary. pS Film SoCietY

esta es la historia de vida y la lucha incansable de estela de Carlotto, la presidenta de las Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo. La cinta aborda primero a su protagonista en su faceta menos conocida, la privada—la mujer “común”, maestra de escuela, esposa y madre de familia, antes de ser golpeada por la desaparición y muerte de su hija, y la apropiación de su nieto. este es un relato de una mujer que extrajo de su dolor la fuerza que la ha convertido en el ícono de la lucha por la identidad que representa hoy en la Argentina y en el mundo.
