Based on harrowing true events, Song Without a Name tells the story of Georgina, an indigenous Andean woman whose newborn baby is whisked away moments after its birth in a downtown Lima clinic—and never returned. Stonewalled by a byzantine and indifferent legal system, Georgina approaches journalist Pedro Campas, who uncovers a web of fake clinics and abductions—suggesting a necrotic corruption deep within Peruvian society.

Set in 1988, in a Peru wracked by political violence and turmoil, Melina León’s heart-wrenching first feature renders Georgina's story in gorgeous, shadowy black-and-white cinematography, “styled like the most beautiful of bad dreams.” (Variety)

Song Without a Name is a “Kafkaesque thriller” (The Hollywood Reporter) that unflinchingly depicts real-life tragedies with poetic beauty.
