Even though the narrative builds momentum and the discoveries pop up slowly, the story is told in a very straightforward way, so it feels closer to journalism than to cinema. Director and "star" Renate Costa is not a particularly gifted filmmaker, but her take on the oppressive Stroessner regime in Paraguay and the way its witch-hunt for homosexuals affected (and continues to affect) her conservative family is engrossing enough.
