Synopsis: Imagining Argentina is set in the dark days of the late 1970’s, when thousands of Argentineans disappeared without a trace into the general’s prison cells and torture chambers. When Carlos Ruweda’s wife is suddenly taken from him, he discovers a magical gift: In waking dreams, he had clear visions of the fates of “the disappeared.” But he cannot “imagine” what has happened to his own wife. Driven to near madness, his mind cannot be taken away: imagination, stories, and the mystical secrets of the human spirit.
