    • Synopsis
    • Alonso, host of a radio program dedicated to folk music, and his friend Pedro high school teacher, live in the early eighties with their couples, Teresa and Zoila, in a small and peaceful Andean city.

      The sudden break in of Shining Path with bombs, blackouts and “executions” and the violent response of the forces of order start to change the provincial atmosphere. The daily life is altered and the happiness of the leading couples falls apart little by little. In the face of this spiral of violence, Alonso changes and is made responsible for the local news at the radio “The last news”. In short time he reaches a great amount of listeners, but with the constant pressures and threats from the subversive group and the detentions and questionings from the military he is driven to a limit situation.
