The story of Oscar, a Guatemalan illegal immigrant who learns he was the survivor of a massacre that killed 250 people in a village in Guatemala thirty years ago. The story reconstructed the massacre, the investigations in both Guatemala and the United States and the extraordinary saga of Oscar, who learned that his life had been a lie and was reunited with his father. Series also showed how the Guatemalan military officers who committed the massacre brazenly eluded justice for years and how one of them won both U.S. and Canadian citizenship because of errors and oversights by U.S. and Canadian governments.
