During a layover in Buenos Aires, 31-year-old German athlete Maria is mesmerized by the city, and her bewilderment grows when her father suddenly reveals her true connection to Argentina — leading her to uncover the painful details of her adoption.
Strong script by first time director Florian Cossen and Elena von Saucken that tells the story of a german tourist on her way to Chile who inadverently finds out she was born in Argentina and her birth parents were 'disappeared' when she was 3. Jessica Schwarz captures the pain and anger of being mislead by her adoptive parents whe bent both law and morality in keeping her. Excellent turn by Michael Gwisdek as well.
A compelling movie about a german girl who learns that she was born in Argentina and stolen from her birth mother and father by the people she had believed to be her parents. A beautiful and touching tale about identity, betrayal, family and forgiveness.
