About this item

Treinta años atrás, cuando Benjamín Chaparro era prosecretario en un juzgado de instrucción, llegó a su oficina la causa de un homicidio que no pudo olvidar. Ahora, ya jubilado, repasa buena parte de su vida, las instancias de ese caso y sus insospechadas derivaciones, y la historia de un amor secreto que lo mantiene acorralado entre la pasión y el silencio. Una trama policial ambientada en los años sesenta y setenta, en una Argentina que paulatinamente se sumerge en la violencia política y cuyos personajes luchan contra la impunidad, la burocracia del sistema judicial y las miserias propias y ajenas. Una historia protagonizada por hombres que hicieron de la búsqueda de la verdad un destino; de la memoria, un camino imprescindible, y de la lealtad, un culto que trasciende el tiempo, las distancias y la muerte. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION This story inspired Juan José Campanella's movie, 2010 Oscar winner in the foreign film category. Set in the Argentina of the 1960s and 70s, the detective story takes place at a time where the country begins a gradual descent into political violence and unrest, and its characters fight against impunity, the bureaucracy of the judicial system, and personal and shared miseries. Thirty years before, a homicide case crossed Benjamín Chaparro's desk, one he was unable to forget. Now retired, he reviews a large portion of his life, the instances of the case and the unsuspected consequences, and the story of a forbidden love that keeps him trapped between passion and silence.
