Trama: Buenos Aires, 1977. Una giovane donna partorisce in un ospedale due gemelli, un maschio e una femmina: ad aiutare la puerpera c'è solo un'ostetrica cui la donna chiede di salvare uno dei due bambini. Tutto avviene velocemente: non appena pulito, il maschietto viene portato via da due uomini dai modi sbrigativi, la femminuccia, che è stata nascosta in una borsa, viene fatta uscire dall'ospedale furtivamente dall'ostetrica, la giovane donna, ancora stravolta dal parto, viene trascinata via di peso da due militari. Milano, 2000. Rosa, una ragazza argentina, rintraccia, dopo averlo a lungo cercato, quello che lei afferma essere il suo gemello, Javier, che vive in una lussuosa villa dell'hinterland con suo padre Raul, ex pilota dell'aviazione argentina e sua madre Vittoria. Il primo incontro con Rosa fa rinascere in Javier dei dubbi che da sempre nutre, magari inconsciamente, ovvero di non essere realmente figlio della coppia che lo ha allevato. Messi con le spalle al muro dal ragazzo, Raul e Vittoria prima rifiutano di parlare dell'argomento poi reagiscono in modo scomposto (lui diventa aggressivo, lei si chiude in un enigmatico silenzio), accrescendo i sospetti di Javier che, a quel punto, decide di seguire Rosa a Barcellona. Giunti nella città spagnola rintracciano la vecchia ostetrica che rivela di aver visto all'ospedale, proprio il giorno in cui nacque Rosa, Vittoria con un cuscino sotto il maglione a simulare la gravidanza e Raul portare via rapidamente un fagotto. L'esame del DNA, tuttavia, smentisce ogni relazione di consanguineità tra i due ragazzi Anche se, ormai, molto legato a Rosa dalle vicissitudini degli ultimi giorni, Javier decide di ritornare a Milano dai genitori e alla vita di sempre, salvo poi, un po' di tempo dopo, sparire improvvisamente. Ritroveremo il ragazzo a Buenos Aires, al fianco di Rosa, ad una manifestazione dell'associazione HIJOS che riunisce i parenti dei desaparecidos e persegue gli ex militari del regime
