    • 'Tupamaro' (Uruguayan guerilla) leader and prisoner held hostage for
      thirteen years during the Uruguayan dictatorship. Prolonged torture
      and confinement led to mental disorder. Today he is a Swedish
      citizen and a scientist renowned for his research into Alzheimer

      which he was forced to live ,the military in charge of his custody,
      his comrades in captivity. The film proposes a further journey- an
      inner one of reflection- which leads us to the prisoner's world of
      hallucinations and strategies to cope with the inhuman
