Roman Polanski directs this psychological thriller. Paulina Escobar (Sigourney Weaver), a former political prisoner, hears on the radio in her beach house that husband Gerardo (Stuart Wilson) has been appointed head of a commission investigating human rights violations by the previous administration. When Gerardo is dropped off home by neighbour Roberto Miranda (Ben Kingsley), Paulina thinks she recognizes him as the man who tortured and raped her when she was a prisoner. She determines to exact a confession from Miranda, clubbing him over the head with a gun and tying him up in the beach house.
