I had to watch this movie for my Spanish class and it was so moving. A true eye opener to the lost generation in Argentina and very touching. It was so sad at certain parts.

Alicia Marnet de IbaƱez is happily married to her husband Roberto. They have an adopted daughter named Gaby. Alicia is blissfully ignorant about what happened in the military coup until one of her history students asks her if she only believes what the history books say. She embarks on a mission to find if her daughter is the daughter of one of the women who disappeared during the coup. When her husband finds out, he does everything in his power to prevent her from finding the truth, but she's determined and nothing he does is going to stop her.
