In 1988, military dictator Augusto Pinochet is forced to call for a referendum to decide his presidency. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a young daring advertising executive, René Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to head their campaign. Against all odds, with scant resources and under scrutiny by the despot’s minions, Saavedra and his team devise a bold plan to win the election and free their country from oppression.
