For three decades, Argentina’s courageous Grandmothers, or “Abuelas”, have been searching for their grandchildren: the children of their sons and daughters who disappeared during Argentina’s “dirty war.” This film is a tribute to these women who have dedicated their lives to honoring a generation lost, with their quest for a generation found.
