In the “Villa Virgin”, a shantytown in the slums of Buenos Aires, Julian The Secret in Their Eyes, and Nicolas–two priests and long -standing friends–work tirelessly to help the local people. Nicolas joins Julian in overseeing the construction of a hospital following the failure of a project he was leading in which paramilitary forces assassinated members of the community. Deeply troubled by his actions, Nicolas finds solace in Luciana, a young, attractive atheist social worker. As Nicholas’s beliefs wane, tension and violence grow between the slum’s drug-dealing cartels and when work on the hospital is halted by ministerial decree, the faith of the entire community is put to the test.
