One day, life in Chile changed forever. Once proud of its exemplary democracy, the nation suddenly fell prey to one of the most brutal dictatorships of the century.
This film shows the daily struggle between freedom and oppression, dignity and offence. No re-enactments, no narration, no interviews. Only the mind-blowing power and drama of live images and sounds showing, as only pictures can, what it’s really like to live under the heel of a dictator. A dramatic structure built of scenes of reality. The story of unknown people that pushed the military out of power.
