Twenty-year-old Luz, an Argentinian, is on holiday in Madrid with her husband and new-born son. But secretly she has a mission - to find her father.
 
Carlos was a 'desaparecido', one of the many political activists in Argentina who literally disappeared during the country's brutal military dictatorship in the seventies. Her mother, a political prisoner, was killed trying to flee the country.
 
As a baby, Luz was secretly adopted by a wealthy couple, unaware of her real identity and her parents' terrible struggle. But now, married with a child of her own, she will not rest until she discovers the truth about her past and can understand for herself the real horrors of Argentina's darkest days.
 
Winner of the Amnesty International Award for Fiction.
