Even a past you are unaware of can suddenly return to haunt you. This is the unsettling reality that Adrian abruptly faces. After the death of his mother, Adrian discovers somebody had been blackmailing her. His father, who left the family 40 years ago, had been a Commander in Peru's war against a terrorist faction. During this time, he was responsible for the torture and rape of numerous prisoners. One of them, a girl named Miriam, managed to escape and remain free. Now Adrian is being blackmailed. A successful lawyer with a beautiful family, he searches for Miriam in an effort to stop the extortion and somehow heal the past. But the past is not easily contained. It begins to bleed through and threaten his carefully crafted life. When he finally finds Miriam, everything in Adrian's world is shaken and everything he is as a man is challenged. Intimate and intense, THE BLUE HOUR is a spellbinding journey into the strange mazes of the human conscience and heart. (In Spanish with subtitles) – C.R.
