1973, Uruguay falls into a full dictatorship. Three political opponents are secretly imprisoned by the new military government. Thrown into tiny jail cells, they are isolated and forbidden to speak, eat or sleep. As their bodies and minds are driven to a level of what is unbearable, the three hostages struggle against an existential crisis to escape a terrible reality that condemns them to madness. The movie recounts the 12 years of imprisonment lived by the three most famous figures of the contemporary Uruguay – including its former president José ‘’Pepe’’ Mújica.
