Peru’s submission to the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film, NN is a compelling drama that won filmmaker Héctor Gálvez the Best Director Award at the Cartagena Film Festival for this powerful, nuanced look at a country’s efforts to come to terms with a dark chapter in its history.

A group of forensic anthropologists digs up the corpses of eight people who disappeared without a trace 20 years ago during a violent political period in Peru. Among them, they find a ninth unidentified corpse. The only thing that can lead to the identity of the man is the vague photo of a smiling girl found in his shirt’s pocket.

Fidel, a thoughtful investigator fascinated by the case, struggles to maintain a scientific approach to his work when a lonely widow shows up convinced this NN (Non Nomine) is her disappeared husband. Should he conduct a thorough investigation that may leave the widow’s plea unanswered or grant her the closure she has been searching for decades?
