Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Germany, France, Switzerland – 2018 – 109′

In the mid-seventies, a strange man arrives in a quiet provincial city. In a restaurant, without any apparent reason, he starts insulting Claudio, a renowned lawyer. The community supports the lawyer and the stranger is humiliated and thrown out of the place. Later that night the stranger, who is determined to wreak a terrible vengeance, intercepts Claudio and his wife Susana. The lawyer then takes a path of no return involving death, secrets and silences.

Argentine, 1975. Claudio, avocat réputé et notable local, mène une existence confortable, acceptant de fermer les yeux sur les pratiques du régime en place.  Lors d’un dîner, il est violemment pris à parti par un inconnu et l’altercation vire au drame. Claudio fait en sorte d’étouffer l’affaire, sans se douter que cette décision va l’entraîner dans une spirale sans fin.
