    Buenos Aires, 1976. The new junta represses the protest with extreme violence. Thousands of people have disappeared. Their children? "Adopted" - for their supposed salvation - by families close to the government; sometimes those of the executioners themselves. From this dark episode of recent history, Elsa Osorio has drawn the story of a quest towards the light. That of Luz, a young woman whose first name can also be understood as "truth": a sesame for the generation that grew up among the ghosts of the "disappeared". Born in 1975, the director Paula Giusti is one of them; and because life has taught her a salutary irony with regard to the feigned obvious, she invites us to accompany her in an investigation into the reverse of the theatrical illusion. Departure here and now. The show is built on sight, the director comments, the performers go back and forth between reality and fiction, echoing Luz's search for her origins. Everything seems to be under control, under the active gaze of the audience... until the fiction emancipates itself. In this vertiginous mise en abîme between truth and falsity, theatre and life, images and puppets give shape to a troubling tale of manipulation and false pretenses. At the end of this maze, resilience. And a lucid look at the lie that usurped the name of reality for an entire nation.
