And only now can the truth behind the Official Story be told. In the mid-70's, Argentina's military dictatorship carried out a brutal campaign of torture and murder against thousands of its own citizens. Set in present day Argentina, the Official Story follows Alicia (Norma Aleandro), the sheltered wife of a wealthy businessman (Hector Alterio), who finds herself face to face with a legacy of terror as she begins to discover that her own daughter, adopted at birth, may have been stolen from a family of "los desaparecidos" (the disappeared ones). The Official Story is the true account of a woman faced with the hardest choice she could make, to live a lie, or risk tearing apart her own life and family.
