After suffering a heart attack, retired General José Mendieta is haunted by his past as an officer in Operation Condor, the CIA-backed campaign of political repression in Latin America.
Official submission of Bolivia to the best foreign language film category of the 87th Academy Awards 2015.
When the poster boy is running away from the soldiers who caught him, he yells, "Viva Tupac!" Again, when Colonel Mendieta is torturing a suspected revolutionary with electric shock, in between shocks, he asks the revolutionary to give up information. The man shouts, "Viva El Tupac!" These are references to Tupac Amaru, a Marxist revolutionary group that terrorized Peru for more than fifteen years. Unfortunately the group was organized in 1982, after Operacion Condor was completed.
