Summary Voices from Silence is about an Argentinian family as viewed by an American journalist, Diego, once an exchange-student friend of its three sons. He returns to Buenos Aires when the political trial concerning the "disappearance" of one of the sons, Miguel Benevento, is about to take place. Along with Miguel, another son, Alejo, had vanished during the 1970s when tens of thousands of such disappearances occurred. Diego sets about probing the truth of those years of terror. For the grieving Papa and Mama Benevento, everything they had truly cared about was taken from them with the loss of Miguel and Alejo. Worst of all, they are putting their own lives at risk as their quest for the public disclosure of political crimes uncovers the treachery of friends, neighbors, and perhaps their own family.
