The experiences of a group of "war prisoners" isolated in an island in the very end of the world
24 September 2009 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

After the Army took over Allende's government -Chile, Sept. 1973- a group of people, including Allende's ministers and closer friends, were sent to Dawson Island, a place located almost at the end of the continent. The movie pictures how they managed to survived and also the way they were treated by soldiers and how in several opportunities they escaped from death. The movie is based on a book by Sergio Bitar, one the prisoners there, and the movie showed us a piece of history that shouldn't be forgotten by any Chilean. I went to watch this film with my dad, who was in Dawson island as well, I saw him crying and he told me "That was what happened there" A great film, a great story.However, a plot that must never be repeated in history again.
