Summary
In the name of the struggle against terrorism, a special operation - code named Condor - was conducted in the 1970s and 1980s in South America. Its targets were left-wing political dissidents, organized labor, and intellectuals. Condor soon became a network of military dictatorships supported by the U.S. State Department, the CIA, and Interpol. This film by Rodrigo Vazquez, a young Argentinian director, tells that story by following several victims of Operation Condor who are fighting for the truth, and by meeting key members of the Condor network who - after 9/11/2001 - openly claim being pioneers of the current fight against international terrorism.
