"December 2001, Buenos Aires. Five days before Christmas a disturbing silence pervades the city. The day before, frustrated Argentineans looted supermarkets. The government reacted immediately by proclaiming a state of emergency. The situation approaches anarchy for twelve days, in which time five presidents will succeed one another. With never before shown footage, this documentary provides a critical analysis of the events around Christmas 2001. It further includes interviews with militants, victims, cameramen and experts, helping to comprehend the connections between, and ramifications of, the many events that led up to chaos. Who holds the future in the years to come, for this young democracy in danger?" -- Film Ideas website.
