PLOT

This is the story of 6 of 154 children who flew alone on a charter provided by Spanish Government, from Europe to Uruguay in 1983, when the Uruguayan dictatorship was coming to an end. They were children of political exiles from Uruguay who were unable to come back to their own country; they sent their kids to know their relatives and home country.

The plane landed at noon, that day was the hottest day ever in Uruguay history.

THE KIDS WENT UP ON 10 URBAN BUSSES AND THEY WEN AS A PARADE

The big surprise was a crowd waiting for the kids, both sides of the road; the streets and the avenue were full of people. The kids were looking astonished through the windows when people greeted them, shouting together “Your parents will come back”.

THERE ARE ONLY 18KM FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE CITY

BUT THE PARADE TOOK 4 HOURS TO ARRIVE

"CHILDREN OF THE EXILE" WERE BACK

The kids traveled instead of their parents, they bring hugs from unknown people in their bags and adult messages which almost nobody could understand. They came back with postcards about that idealized, sad and strange country. Still some of them wonder if it is their own country.

This human sign, charged with a political message, will be helpful not only with human rights’ fight and freedom, but also it will seed in many children’s life, the conflict between identity and desertion, forever.

Nowadays, Jorge lives in Denmark, Marcos in Belgium, Guzman in Italy, Cecilia in Spain, Fernando and Salvador in Uruguay.

Some of them are already parents; others have been parents in these days and the rest of them live with their children far from their relatives. They keep and remember that freedom sign which thrilled and joined a whole country, and since then, they think about their own life as children of political exiles, which role they had to play, about people, places and stuff they left behind so they could go after their parents, “in a life full of retirements”.
