In a not determined country of Latin America,Chile or any other country that has suffered the consequences of a dictatorship lives Paulina and Gerardo, her husband. She is a woman who survived the tortures of an already overcome dictatorship; it was then when, Gerardo Escobar was a student and a publishing leader of a clandestine publication. Paulina dealt with the pain without betraying her boyfriend as the torturers were claiming. Now she lives with her fighting partner (Gerardo), in a beach house, completely isolated, close to the cliff. Escobar, now judge of the republic, has been named in a commission to investigate the deaths occured during the past regime. Fate propitiates that Roberto Miranda, the doctor entrusted to maintain alive the victims until they were confessing and who at the same time condemned them to the worst of hells, comes one night to the house of the cliff. She(it) recognizes his(her,your) voice and decides to make him confess, in an imitation of judgment(reason), looking that the truth emerges and this way probably his(her,your) soul recovers the peace that has lost.

An assistant, who has worked with victims of the conflict armed(assembled) in our country, was contributing some considerations: " every victim demands to be a protagonist and it only to be obtained on having obtained the truth of mouth of his(her,your) victimario; it(he,she) does not seek to remember only. The sanación of the pain is obtained on having heard renowned this memory(report) ".
But which is the logic of joint to place in the place of other one; of whom he(she) asks for pardon, of whom it(he,she) grants it? A text written by an exmilitante ETA member, now in prison, does less than one month (June 24, 2012) and in which(whom) he(she) asks for pardon all the victims that direct or indirectly it(he,she) had provoked his(her,your) to gesticulate, but in which(whom) it(he,she) does also a deep reflection on the pardon, throws his(her) new elements for this construction of sense of the pardon; he(she) says this way in someone of his(her,your) new paragraphs: " to come to the pardon, it is indispensable to go beyond the political speeches of different sign, without for it to ignore them, and to try to place this reflection in an area first of...
