Buenos Aires schoolteacher Alicia (Norma Aleandro, in a masterclass performance that won her best actress at the Cannes Film Festival) lives in middle-class comfort with her entrepreneur husband and adopted daughter, and in blissful ignorance of the evils perpetuated by her country's government.

A teacher of pro-government history - the "official story" - Alicia soon starts on a moral and political reawakening, when she suspects that her adopted daughetr is the child of a murdered political prisoner. As suppressed feelings and buried truths surface, Alicia is forced to confront the stark reality, not only about political oppression, but the basis of her own relationship.
