The Son of the Hunter

For the first time, the son of a torturer speaks. Aged 16, he worked on the Army’s Intelligence Area. Nowadays he lives isolated, far from his family. His father’s former colleagues think he is a traitor and the Human Rights organizations watch him with a sense of mistrust. His only refuge is a small house in the slums where he lives with his belorussian wife, surrounded by cats and dogs that he protects as his own children.
