Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
This Argentine drama begins with the suicide of respected judge Costa Makantasis (Hector Alterio). Each of his three adult sons confess to the murder of Ana (Leticia Bredice), and it's learned that her businessman father (Jorge Marrale) was being investigated by the judge. All three brothers and their father had an interest in Ana, whose story is revealed in flashbacks. An investigating judge, Dr. Beatriz Teller (Cecilia Roth) searches for the connection between the two deaths. Shown at the 1997 Toronto Film Festival, the alternate English title is Paradise Ashes.
