"Everyone deserves a second chance." Maixabel Lasa sits across from her husband's killer. Her memories of what happened in 2000, when her husband Juan María Jaúregui was murdered in cold blood by supporters of the Basque underground organisation ETA, haven’t faded in the least. Eleven years later, Maixabel receives an incredible request: one of the incarcerated assassins wants to meet her in prison, and to the shock of those around her, Maixabel agrees. Based on true events, director Icíar Bollaín tells the inspiring story of a woman who dares to take a courageous step towards peace and forgiveness.
