The Esmeralda is one of the most beautiful sailing vessels in the world. A symbol of national pride, she is the Chilean navy's training vessel. But today, the White Lady, as she is affectionately known to Chileans, can no longer hide her troubled past.

After the 1973 coup d'état, she was used as a floating prison in the port of Valparaíso. Thirty years later, as the military authorities continue to deny what happened, impunity reigns. Yet the victims of the dictatorship refuse to be silenced and they are demanding justice.
