    This documentary examines the 1976-1983 period in Argentina, when that nation was terrorized by one of the cruelest military dictatorships in Latin American history. The military junta's "dirty war" against "subversive" forces resulted in the kidnapping and 'disappearing' of over 30,000 people, the imprisonment and torture of more than 10,000 political prisoners in hundreds of clandestine detention camps, the kidnapping of hundreds of these victims' children, and the exile of thousands of other citizens. The video also documents the 1983 return to democracy, the subsequent trials and pardons of the military leaders, and their bitter legacy which continues to divide the country, blending archival footage with interviews with historians, writers, artists, lawyers, and the children of 'disappeared' persons.
