In the name of " the struggle against terrorism ", a special operation - code named Condor - was conducted in the seventies and eighties in South America. Its target were left wing political dissidents, the organised labour and intellectuals. Condor soon became a network of Military Dictator ships, supported by the US State Department, the CIA and Interpol. The film by Rodrigo Vazquez, a young Argentinian director, tells that story by following several victims of Operation Condor fighting for the truth, and by meeting key members of the Condor network themselves who - after 9/11/2001- openly claim being pioneers of the current fight against " International terrorism ".
