Who was the woman who rose most in the hierarchy of PIDE and what fed her extreme cruelty? Leninha lived her nights in Caxias, as an agent and torturer, with delight. Inside the cells, her heart exulted with each slap and insult uttered. Although she would forget the names of most of the detainees, she would remember with pleasure her expression of terror. Of Laura, curiously, she never forgot. She always questioned what fiber would be made the young Alentejana who never bent before blows and insults. When the two meet again in court, everything has changed. But the wounds of the dictatorship will never go out.
