Synopsis

Fresia, a Chilean woman, devoted her life to the search of her husband Omar, an Italian-born man who 'disapperead' in Chile in 1973, in the aftermath of General Pinochet's coup d'etat. After a 36-year quest for truth and justice, and a judicial and moral battle that took everything from her, Fresia's sufferings opened the door to a terrible cancer, as it happened to many victims of other historical tragic events. However, Fresia never gave up and managed to take to a court the military officer who was allegedly responsible for having tortured and killed his husband Omar. The trial against the military officer thus turns to be an existential process revealing the connections between law and justice and between these ones and life.
