Paradoxically, the date on which the Universal Declaration of Rights of Man...展开is commemorated.

Based on actual events which occurred in the village San Miguel de Tucuman in Agentina in July 1976, the military governor from the interior province instructs the local police chief to remove the undesirables for an upcoming visit by the ruling dictator.
