Lost Bodies
  • Lost Bodies

  • In a desert prison camp, a man is rotting, half-alive, at the bottom of a well. Andrès has been there, alongside others suffering the same punishment, for many years.

    On the outskirts of the camp, Tamia hides behind rocks, hoping to hear news of her lover who she thinks is a prisoner. After months of furtive meetings with one of the guards she has seduced, she finally learns that her man died months ago. That same night, she finds Andrès making his escape...

    Lost Bodies is both a heartbreaking love story and a searing tale of terrorism and political repression.
