The memorable story of Guatemala's Schindler. In the late 1970s, journalist Elías Barahona, AKA “El Topo”, infiltrated the military government as head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs’ press office. Barahona put his life on the line every day to save dozens of dissidents from the regime. In 2014, El Topo decides to break decades of silence to testify in a state trial. Filmmaker Anais Taracena accompanies him with her camera. A few weeks after testifying, Barahona dies. Taracena gives voice to the forgotten and follows in the footsteps of El Topo to recover Guatemala’s silenced memory.
