    Synopsis

    Based on the novel by Eduardo Sacheri about a man who wants to solve a murder committed 30 years ago.

    Newly retired from his career in Argentina's criminal court, Benjamin Esposito (Ricardo Darin) begins writing a novel about a case from his past that continues to haunt him. In 1974, a beautiful young newlywed was raped and murdered in her home while her husband worked at the bank. Esposito was sent to investigate the horrifying crime.

    Looking at the gaze of a man in photos from the murdered woman's college years, a younger Esposito instinctively feels he has his killer. Tracking down the suspect becomes a personal obsession that draws him and his colleague, the brilliant but unreliable alcoholic Pablo Sandoval (Guillermo Francella), into ever-riskier situations. The case also intensifies Esposito's relationship to his young boss, Irene Menéndez Hastings (Soledad Villamil), a striking, Ivy League-educated woman whom he secretly, hopelessly adores. While initially critical of his unsanctioned sleuthing tactics, she soon becomes a partner in the investigation. Despite their dedication, however, inept officials and politics both internal and external to the court -- the seventies was a turbulent era in Argentine history -- threaten to let justice slip away. Searching for an ending to his book, the older would-be writer makes a startling discovery that compels him to redeem his past and seize his future.
