Buenos Aires, 1977. The military dictatorship governs the country. Despite the terrorizing political climate, 40-something of ce clerk Francisco Sanctis maintains a calm life with his wife and two small children. His only worry is the suspense of when he will be promoted at work.

Francisco’s routine is upset one afternoon when Elena, an old college friend who he has not seen in 20 years, calls unexpectedly. She urgently needs Francisco to sign an authorization to publish a revolutionary poem he wrote long ago for a school bulletin. When they meet discreetly in her car, Elena confesses that the poem was an excuse. She tells Francisco an address and two names of people who are scheduled to be picked up by the army. It’s up to Francisco to warn them.
