Los pasos perdidos The lost steps ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Argentine military governments of the 1970's and early 1980's left a terrible legacy. Not only "Los Desaparecidos," but also babies taken from their parents at birth, and relocated with families sympathetic to the regime, often families of the leaders and cronies. The lost steps is the story, twenty years later, of Argentine-born Monica apparently living a contented life in Spain with her parents until one day she is confronted by a man claiming to be her grandfather! Director Manane Rodriguez skillfully weaves the intense political strife with one man's faith that his grandaughter is alive, and his remorseless search in finding her."--Container
