Following the assassination of Chilean President Salvador Allende in 1973, well-known film director Miguel Lattín was exiled. Twelve years later he returned to Chile clandestinely, disguised as an Uraguayan businessman, to film a documentary about life under the Augusto Pinochet regime. Nobel laureate García Márquez met Littín in Madrid in 1986 and felt the account of the filming needed to be told. Eighteen hours of interviews resulted in this chilling thriller.
Littín's film was shown on television and an edited version was released to movie theaters.
