About the Play

Josefina’s daughter, Carolina, has been protesting in the plaza again. If Carolina keeps wearing the white scarf and searching for her own missing daughter, Belén, they’ll all be in danger. An award-winning and empowering new play about three generations of women based on the true story of the “Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo,” who searched for their missing loved ones during 1979’s “Dirty War” in Argentina.
