Synopsis

In 1972 Uruguay, a year before the military coup, Diego and Leonardo (Joaquín Furriel and Alberto Amman), two writers of a well-known TV comedy show, struggle to maintain their integrity under the pressure they receive to tone down their political satires against the military. On the side of the oppressors, Rojas (Daniel Grao, Julieta), a lieutenant in charge of torturing subversive youth, finds emotional refuge in his relationship with prostitute Susana (Martina Gusmán).

Slowly, their lives are deeply impacted by the oppressive and increasingly tense atmosphere that envelops Montevideo and almost all of them come together in a hostel run by a Spanish woman (Maribel Verdú).

As the coming dictatorship looms over them, The Year of Fury explores how fear gradually poisons professional, platonic and romantic relationships during this turbulent period in Uruguayan history. Exuding unique poignancy and heart this exciting ensemble thriller, from director and screenwriter Rafa Russo, delivers a thoughtfully executed story of love, friendship and betrayal in troubled times.
