In this first-time feature by commercials director Leonardo Kocking, a kindergarten teacher living in Chile during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet returns home from work later than usual one night and is greeted with the sight of her husband being dragged unwillingly from their house and stuffed into a waiting car. Her efforts to find him and appeals to the authorities of the country are unavailing. She tries to continue with her life, moving in to live with a woman friend and coping with the advances of an old flame. When she finally hears word of her husband's whereabouts, she is led to an old (and now empty) prison camp, so her situation remains utterly ambiguous, The story is told in flashbacks as she journeys by bus from the city she lives in to the camp in the northern deserts of Chile.
