Set during Argentina's military dictatorship in the late 1970s, GARAGE OLIMPO is the heart-wrenching story of Maria (Antonella Costa), a young outspoken teacher, living in Buenos Aires, who is arrested for her membership of a militant organisation. Whilst the rest of the city is absorbed in World Cup football, she is interrogated in a local garage, Garage Olimpo, which has torture cells beneath it in the basement. She is forced to adopt strategies for survival. A shocking, moving and intense portrayal of a brutal period in recent history.
