Synopsis

In the summer of 1991, in Mendoza, the body of the German botanist Heinz Brücher was found. The case remains in the dark for 30 years until a journalist decides to reopen, investigating the connections between the murdered scientist, his Nazi past, the creation of a plant virus, and the theft of the world’s largest seed bank.
