    • Synopsis
    • "I remember September 11, 1973, somber day on which America instigated a coup d'etat to knock down the peace-loving and democratic revolution which had been built in my faraway country Chile by eliminating its President of the Republic, Salvador Allende, that "son-of-a-bitch" as Richard Nixon liked to refer to him.
      The urge to return to this atypical man, revolutionary and fanatic of democracy to the point of suicide, came over me for obvious historical reasons, but also for its cruel actuality."
