Santiago is trapped. Taken political prisoner in Montevideo after a brutal military coup, he can do nothing but write letters to his family, and try to stay sane. Far away, his nine-year-old daughter Beatrice wonders at the marvels of 1970s Buenos Aires, but her grandpa and mother struggle to adjust to a life in exile. From one of Latin America's most influential authors, Springtime in a Broken Mirror tells of the indelible imprint politics leaves on individual lives and asks whether the broken bonds of family and history can ever truly be mended.
