Synopsis

An encounter between Marcia Merino―the Skinny Alejandra―a former member of leftist movement MIR before the 1973 coup who became an informant for Pinochet's secret police after being tortured, and one of her victims.

Review

Carmen Castillo, the former secretary of the Allende Chilean president killed in Augusto Pinochet's coup d'état and lover of the murdered Chilean leftist MIR leader, returns to the country where she was expelled after about 20 years. Her return is more special because it is a journey with the renegade who pushed her lover and comrades to death. Marcia Merino, who was once a member of the Chilean leftist movement and was also in charge of verifying the identities and hiding place of the comrades under the Chilean secret police torture. The companion continues to ask Castillo for forgiveness in this painful path to the concealed place of torture and the place where she informed on the old comrades to the police. However, the film asks for who is authorized to forgive her on behalf of dead victims. It continually inserts an image of a person being arrested and dragged by the police. A piece of film too old to be identified wanders like a ghost in the film, as if the vanished image of the past suddenly recalled to reality and reminded us of the people missing under the Pinochet regime.
