Benjamin Chaparro is a man haunted by his past - a retired detective, he remains obsessed with the decades-old case of the rape and murder of a young woman. As he revisits the details of the investigation, he is reacquainted with his similarly long, unrequited love for Irene Hornos, then just an intern, now a respected judge.
Absorbing and masterfully crafted, The Secret in Their Eyes is a meditation on the effects of the passage of time and unfulfilled desire.
