Mirta DeSalvo and her husband, Alberto, refugees of the Dirty War of Argentina, owe their lives to wealthy American, Julia Parks, who rescued them from the horrors of the junta and offered a new life in Two Rock, California. Julia, confronted with a late-in-life pregnancy, asks the DeSalvos to adopt the baby with the added condition that they not return to Argentina until baby Francesca is grown. Though aware of the extraordinary sacrifice the promise will require, the DeSalvos have no honorable choice but to accept. The search for their own granddaughter will have to wait, as will Mirta's burning desire to bring to justice the military officer who destroyed her family.

A generational story that skillfully illuminates the resilient lives of characters touched by loss and betrayal, loved ones stolen in the night, and the search for a birth mother hiding in plain sight, The Confessional is a compelling rendering of how war and love thousand of miles apart create trauma that ripples through two generations and emerges as love, understanding and forgiveness.
