Synopsis

Carlos Rueda is the director of a children's theatre in Buenos Aires, a city haunted by the ongoing disappearance of individuals who dare to take a stand against the dictatorship government. He returns one day to find his home empty; his wife, Cecelia, a journalist, has been taken away for writing a controversial article in local paper 'La Opinion'. Carlos meets with others whose loved ones have disappeared and discovers, that in the extreme desperation of people, he can look into their faces and see the fate of those they love. Somehow, he has no idea how, he can see into the past and the future. People flock to him for news of those disappeared. But no matter how hard he tries, he cannot see where Cecelia is, though he can sense where she has been. He tracks her, but wherever he goes, he is always one step behind. Meanwhile Cecelia is planning her own dangerous escape.
