Based on true events, this intense political thriller traces the twists and turns in the life of Lena and Daniel, a young couple who lead a happy life.
Their troubles begin when Daniel is abducted by Pinochet's secret police and they soon find themselves deeply embroiled in the dangers of the Chilean military coup of 1973.
Bold and brave, Lena leads a mission to track Daniel's whereabouts and locates him at a sealed off area in the south of the country, called Colonia Dignidad. The Colonia presents itself as a charitable mission run by lay preacher Paul Schäfer but, in fact, is a place nobody ever escaped from. Lena decides to join the cult in order to find Daniel. Will she be successful in her mission? Can Lena and Daniel break through the confines of the cult and escape to freedom?
