Traveling with her free-spirited teenage daughter, Irene, and her young son, she’s soon reunited with a close friend from days gone by, Paco (Javier Bardem, Skyfall, No Country for Old Men). With Laura’s large extended family gathered to celebrate the nuptials, spirits are high and a sense of frivolity reigns. But the wedding night descends from joy to despair when Irene (Carla Campra) suddenly goes missing from her bed. In the place of the sleeping girl are a selection of newspaper clippings, all with stories about a local child who was kidnapped years earlier in the town. Desperate with panic and wracked with grief, Laura turns to Paco for support and assistance as she searches everywhere for Irene. As time passes, the situation only becomes more fraught. Suspicions mount, loved ones begin to turn on one another, and dark secrets long hidden threaten to come to light, revealing shocking truths. (Fully subtitled)

For a brief 33 months, from 1978 to 1980, the nightclub Studio 54 was the place to be seen in Manhattan. A haven of hedonism, tolerance, glitz and glamour, Studio 54 was very hard to get into and impossible to ignore, with news of who was there filling the gossip columns daily. Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, two college friends from Brooklyn, succeeded in creating the ultimate escapist fantasy in the heart of the theater district. Rubell was the outgoing party-boy who wanted to be everybody’s friend and knew every celebrity, and Schrager was the quiet, behind-the-scenes workhorse. Studio 54 was an instant success and a cash cow, but the drug-and-sex-fueled dream soon imploded in financial scandal and the club’s demise. Now for the first time Schrager tells the inside story with unprecedented candor. Director Matt Tyrnauer (Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood, Valentino: The Last Emperor) constructs a vivid, glorious portrait of a disco-era phenomenon, and tells the story of two friends who stuck together through an incredible series of highs and lows to create the greatest club of all time.
