In the early days of a reinstated democracy, curmudgeonly prosecutor Julio Strassera (Ricardo Darín, HEROIC LOSERS, THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES) is tasked with bringing Argentina's brutal military dictatorship to justice. Going against a still-powerful ruling class, the Trial of the Juntas is considered a losing and dangerous proposition. But Strassera finds a partner in Assistant Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo (Peter Lanzani, THE CLAN) who helps assemble a ragtag group of hungry, young lawyers. Together they gather the powerful testimonies of more than 800 victims, presented in a landmark televised trial that grips the nation. Despite constant death threats and a sharply divided country, they persist, fighting for justice against all odds. Inspired by true events, Santiago Mitre's (15 WAYS TO KILL YOUR NEIGHBOR, THE SUMMIT) rousing courtroom drama finds moments of levity thanks to Darín's star-powered performance and a smart script from Mitre and Mariano Llinás (LA FLOR). Official Selection, 2022 Venice Film Festival.
