    • Synopsis
    • Dalmiro Bustos is a psychiatrist and psych-dramatist. On April 2, 1982 he faced one of the most difficult moments of his life. To see how his son Fabian, 18years old, was sent to the Malvinas war with the terrible option of killing or dying.
      Malvinas was the only war in which Argentina participated during the 20th century.
      Immediately Dalmiro and Elena, his wife, looked for other parents as support and company, gathering more than 700 people who quickly organized to try to improve the situation faced by parents and children.
      Together they created a space of contention to assimilate the devastating news that came from the islands but also to try to communicate with their children.
      They did a radio program that they called "Goodnight Malvinas". In each of the transmissions they sent messages to the soldiers. Mothers, fathers, girlfriends, grandmothers, neighbors and also people who did not know them and wanted to greet, accompany or simply express solidarity. A way of sharing time and space, a channel of communication of a unique way and an enormous effort to be present feeling that somehow they accompanied their family.
      Not all returned, many stayed there.
      The survivors were wounded in body and soul, and society as a whole has a wound that is killing it slowly.
      War breaks the road and everything goes astray. The reasons are unknown because the wars of the states are organized by the same states without giving any explanation to the population, and in the case of Malvinas, without giving any type of restraint to any person of all the ones that live in Argentina.
      Our society is not ready for war after dozens of years of discontinuous dictatorships suffered a final death blow, despair and frustration.
      This is the story of a father, a mother and a son who have to daily face the fact what changed their lives radically: The Malvinas War.
      Like all trauma, until it is processed as a group by our society, it will be an open and bleeding wound for all.
      More than 30 years have passed and the pain and the wounds have been spread by the new generations.
      Dalmiro reacts again. He decides to organize a new group, once again. A group with people related to the Malvinas war directly or indirectly. A group that will penetrate the technique of psychodrama and thus find the wounds they have in common, and together begin to heal them.
      Will that path end when you open Pandora's box?
