Buenos Aires, Argentina. March 24, 1976. A military coup overthrows the democratic government. Their goal is to crush any perceived “subversives”. In her home, Margarita waits for her 21-year-old daughter Rosa to return. But Rosa never returns.

Based on first hand interviews, this one woman-show tells the riveting tale of the voices of the Mothers of Argentina¸ Las Madres de Plaza de Mayo. Adorning different characters Ms. Jones presents a captivating picture of a woman’s struggle and growth as she moves from her role as wife and mother to that of political advocate. Wearing a white kerchief and carrying a photo of her missing daughter in her hands, Margarita marches every Thursday with other women like her. They circle the Plaza de Mayo, their voices representing hundreds of missing faces.
