Twenty years have passed since the signing of the Peace Agreements to the war in El Salvador (1980-92), a conflict which set against each other the army and the FMLN guerrilla. The military operations of the armed forces in the rural areas had devastating results for the civil population, with thousands of deaths and missing people. In the midst of the war, the metallic stork decided the future of three children. Ricardo was taken by a family of soldiers, Ana Lilian roamed for years after being the only survivor of her entire family, and Blanca was adopted in Spain. They were lost children in the 1980s and now they struggle to understand their past to install peace in their future
