This movie is based on true events.

Juan, wake up, Juan, we're here.

Come on.

- What is it?

- I have to pee.

I told you to go before leaving.

- What is it, kiddo?

- We're almost there.

I'm out of cigarettes,

be right back.

Hurry, Mom! Quick!


The bastards!



They hit me on the leg!

Horacio, what happened?

- Are you alright?

- I'm fine.

You okay, kiddo?

Go with him. Take him!

It's okay, honey.

Daddy's alright.

Horacio, what'll we do?

Let's get outta here!

After the death of President Pern.

Paramilitary groups started

persecuting and murdering

social activists and revolutionaries.

The military seized power.

Unleashing the most violent repression

in Argentina's history.

Exiled in Cuba.

The revolutionary leaders

of Montoneros


the "Counterstrike Operation."

Some activists go home

with their children.

Hello, hello, 1, 2, 3, 4, testing.

Ready. Shall we?


Hey, handsome.

It's funny I'm taping this

rather than saying it to you.

But hey, it's so

that you can listen to us

as many times as you want

till we meet again.

Today we begin our journey

back to Argentina,

but we'll take different roads,

which means

we'll be separated for a while.

Here's Dad.

Go on.

Hey, kiddo.

Here I am.

We'll be separated for a while,

so I'll miss you like crazy.

But the good thing is,

we're going back.

And that

we're doing this because...

because we think it's the right time

to carry on fighting.

We're going back separately.

You and Vicky go

with Carmen and Gregorio.

They'll be your parents.

You'll be going through Brazil.

If anybody asks a question, you say:

"I don't speak Spanish."

Eu no falo espaol.


Move it!


Remember how I told you

all about when El Che left Cuba?

You did those drawings.

Amazing. I still have them.

Now it's your turn

to do as he did.

Remember that time

he went to Congo.

Dressed as a business man.

Suit, tie and all?

With a Uruguayan passport

under the name

"Ramn Benitez Fernndez."

That's how nobody recognized him.

And in Bolivia he went by the name

"Adolfo Mena Gonzlez"

and also wore a suit.

And you laughed that he shaved

his head as if he had gone bald.

And those glasses...

But your favorite detail

was the hat he wore...

So, handsome.

This is your mission.

You've already chosen a name.

You're no longer Juan.

From now on you're...


So, what about the World Cup?

We don't discuss soccer,

but congratulations

on winning the Cup.

World champions -

gotta give it to us, huh?

Welcome to our country.

I'll go make a call

across the street.

Meet you at the bar.

Stay here. We'll be right back.

What's up, kiddo?


- Why're you here?

- Cool it.

We don't want to attract a crowd!

- What're you doing 'ere?

- "Doing 'ere?"

That Cuban accent will get us killed!

Pretend we saw each other yesterday.

Now we get up,

calmly walk over there

and continue the trip.

Carmen and Gregorio?

Carmen and Gregorio are gone.

You're with me now.

- How awesome is this van?

- Oi, awesome van.

What do you mean

"oi", awesome van?

We say "hey" here.

Stay calm. Don't talk.

I'll do the talking.

- Documents.

- Hello, officer.

Juan, you have to repeat it

over and over.

You can't hesitate. Remember.

You're no longer Juan.

You're Ernesto.





Morning, kiddo!

Put some shoes on,

you'll freeze.

Morning, handsome!

Had a good night's rest?

Boy, did I miss you!

- Okay...

- Don't you love me anymore?

- Chilly, huh?

- We miss the tropical warmth.

- So what's this place?
