In 1970, Salvador Allende became the first elected socialist president in Chile.
Three years later, the coup d'état led by General Pinochet with the support of the United States ended his mandate. Salvador Allende killed himself in his besieged palace. His proposals disrupted a world split into two distinct blocks. Allende was a nuisance and his vision unwelcome.
This film is a thriller, an investigation between the present and the past to understand what remains of his vision.
