Item Details

In 1980s El Salvador, a young woman is detained in a government torture squad's head-quarters, suspected of supporting guerrilla forces. A new recruit, Victor Peña, is assigned to assist in her interrogation, but before they learn so much as her name - Lorca - the squad relentlessly break her, body and soul. Years later, this terrifying journey into human cruelty and courage still haunts the tormentor as dramatically as it does his victim. Explicit descriptions of violence, strong language and some descriptions of sex. 2009.
