Migas de pan

When Liliana returns to Uruguay – the stage for her tragic past – her conscience is painfully torn between the political and the personal. Will she move past her haunted history and live peacefully as a mother and grandmother, or face her demons by joining a lawsuit on behalf of women who were sexually abused during the dictatorship? The action unfolds in two different eras: the present day, living in exile in Spain, and those fateful years of the Uruguayan Dictatorship (1973-1985). An unflinchingly graphic portrayal of the brutality suffered, and a bold defence of truth and honesty when it comes to public and private knowledge of the past.
