In 1976, a military coup in Argentina triggered the mass persecution of political dissidents, and tens of thousands of people were killed or disappeared. Two decades later, children of the disappeared created an organization called HIJOS-an acronym that, in English, translates as Daughters and Sons for Identity and Justice Against Forgetting and Silence. This program focuses on HIJOS member Lucia Garcia as it chronicles her 15-year-long struggle for justice. The trauma, both individual and collective, is set against the achievement of bringing human rights abusers to court. A Time to Fight has been filmed in a variety of formats across the years, reflecting the long period of the shoot and giving each period a distinctive look as Garcia's voice narrates her memory of the struggle from today's perspective.
