Peru, the 1980s. With the country going through political crises and a state of panic created by terrorist groups, Georgina (Pamela Mendoza) is a poor young woman about to have her first child. Yet after she gives birth at a clinic, the baby is whisked away and never returned; the clinic is fake. Georgina’s desperation leads her to the national newspaper, where sympathetic young journalist Pedro (Tommy Párraga) is keen to investigate her claims. Based on real events and shot in austere black and white, Melina León’s artful and affecting debut feature confronts a shocking chapter in Peru’s recent history. MH
