Description: 

Paulina Escobar is the housewife to a prominent lawyer in an unnamed
third World country. One day a storm forces her husband to ride home
with a neighbor. That chance encounter brings up demons from her past,
as she is convinced that the neighbor (Dr. Miranda) was part of the old
fascist regime that tortured and raped her, while blindfolded. Paulina
takes him captive to determine the 'truth'. Paulina is torn between her
psychological repressions and somber memory, Gerardo is torn between his
wife and the law, and Dr. Miranda is forced to endure captivity while
husband and wife seek out the uncertain truth about the clouded past.
