The distinctive seal of the military dictatorship were the “death flights”. These flights were the Argentinian version of the “Final Solution”: prisoners in clandestine detention centres were anaesthetised and thrown alive into the ocean from military aircrafts. Within this context, the plot is about María, a young activist and educator. Some financial difficulties have led her family into accepting tenants, among which is Felix, a shy young boy in love with María, who seems not to have a past nor a family and claims to be a garage watchman. Felix and María will not be unfamiliar with the context in which they live.
