This is a documentary about the life and work of Raymundo Gleyzer, Argentine filmmaker who was kidnapped and murdered by that country's military dictatorship in 1976. It chronicles the development of his filmography by identifying the personal and contextual circumstances during the creation of his films; it documents obstacles and difficulties in the process and tries to measure the impact his films had on the social awareness of citizens in a suppressed society. The film also takes account of the efforts and tactics employed to distribute Raymundo's work under most adverse political conditions. After almost 30 years, this documentary reunites all surviving material from Raymundo's work and offers what many dictatorships (foreign and domestic) could not destroy: his memory, his ideals and his courage to tell the truth.
