After suffering a heart attack, retired General José Mendieta is haunted by his dark past as an officer in Operation Condor, the CIA-backed campaign of political repression in Latin America that was responsible for executions, torture, and imprisonments in the 1970’s. It is estimated that over 400,000 people were imprisoned and 30,000 forcibly disappeared as a result of these government actions.
In a letter to his son Pablo, Mendieta confesses the role he played in the abduction, persecution, and execution of countless men and women during his posting to Chile. Journalist Marco and his pregnant wife Luciá are among those who were arrested, along with their activist friend Antonio and revolutionary Andrea. They suffer terribly under Mendieta and his cohort Sanera, which leads to a cascade of betrayals, secrets, and stolen lives that spans generations.
