Dir. Luis Puenzo. 1985. Argentina. 112 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.

This Academy Award winning film tells the story of Alicia Marnet de Ibañez who is happily married to her husband Roberto. They have an adopted daughter named Gaby. Alicia is blissfully ignorant about what happened in the military coup until one of her history students asks her if she only believes what the history books say. She embarks on a mission to find if her daughter is the daughter of one of the women who disappeared during the coup.
