Argentina, 1970s. The president catches a cold and dies. Who succeeds him? His VP, also his fifth-grade educated wife, selected expressly because she posed no threat to the president’s power. So then what? The word “disappeared” goes from being a verb form to a noun. Thousands of people become the “disappeared”, and thousands of others tortured and killed. What do we learn from this? It’s important to have a VP capable of true leadership, an important point to keep in mind in the upcoming US presidential election.
