Augusto Pinochet, who ruled Chile from the early 1970s through 1990, is the focus of this documentary. South American filmmaker Patricio Guzman, who himself was forced to leave Chile after Pinochet rose to power, chronicles the collapse of Pinochet's violent and corrupt reign. Guzman interviews various people who were tortured during the dictator's regime and aims to make the case that a South American court ultimately threw out -- that Pinochet was indeed a war criminal.
