Photographs documenting police actions during demonstrations in South America are accompanied by a commentary talking about malnutrition of the people and deaths of up to a million children in the countries on this continent from diseases that are otherwise commonly curable. A group of young revolutionaries have abducted Juan Morales, a man who directly participated in torturing and murdering thirty-six of their comrades. The revolutionary tribunal sentences the elderly man to death and one of the young men is chosen to be the punisher. Morales defends himself: after all, he has never personally tortured anyone. It has been proven, however, that he was always present, interrogating the tortured men and inspiring new methods of torture. The punisher is left alone with his gun and Morales, who is sitting in a chair, his hands tied. The young man hesitates, gathering courage to do the execution. This gives Morales time to slip out of his binds; as they grapple, the gun goes off and the bullet hits the young man. Before he dies, he manages to execute the sentence. Five people a day die in Latin America for political reasons.
