    • Synopsis
    • There are about 3.000.000 people in Argentina who don't know their true identity. These stories of babies who were given, sold or stolen from their mothers, are today the stories of adults, who are searching for their origins, in order to find out the truth.
      “Nacidos Vivos” (“Born Alive”) walks through the struggle of those persons whose identity has been replaced and that have decided to learn about their true origin. The film tells about a problem that does not only occur in Argentina but also in Spain, where the theft of newborns is not deemed as a crime against humanity either.
      The testimonies of the protagonists reflect the reality of the ones that cannot exercise their right, while the Director of the Human Rights Office, of the Civil Registry of Buenos Aires, performs a silent task for rebuilding their histories.
