This is the story of the mothers who risked their lives to demonstrate in the plazas by holding placards of the children they lost during the "guerra sucia" the dirty war fought in Argentina during the 1976-1983 repression by the Alfonsin junta. Through the Mother's own words we see the unfolding of Argentinian history, the growing polarization of society and how they coped with the effects not only on their family but the social structure of a country.
