In 1970 in Chile the International Worker’s Movement celebrated the surprise election of Salvador Allende’s socialist government. Three years later the military seized power. This drama documentary combines actor and director Francisco Morales’ personal account of the coup with the fictional story of a journalist’s journey across the Atacama Desert.
