Synopsis: 1985, Buenos Aires - Accused of heinous crimes against humanity, the Military Juntas of Argentina's last dictatorship (1976/83) stands on trial. As in Nuremberg after World War II, the trial is entirely recorded in U-matic tapes. The testimonies of the horror were heard for 90 days and the final verdict: Never Again. The defenders; political and ideological positions pro-dictatorship facing tortured victims voicing stories of pain. Life and death in the same room. An archive of the past and a film that emerges as a starting point.

Directors Bio: Ulises de la Orden started his career in film in 1991, as an occasional actor in short films , and running cables for slightly larger productions, music videos and ads. After starting his production company, Polo Sur Cine, in 1998, he has been focusing on his own projects, seeking to tell stories about the environment, indigenous peoples and pressing social and political issues; stories that touch his heart.
