This gripping historical drama begins in 1988 when dictator Augusto Pinochet, succumbing to international pressure, calls for a national referendum on the proposal to extend the dictator’s presidency a further eight years. The ballot presented two choices: Yes (extend Pinochet’s rule) or No (no more Pinochet). Much of the population believed that the referendum would be rigged, and was merely a front to placate the international community. There was also the problem for many that participating in the referendum would seem to legitimize it. But many in the opposition did not want to pass up this opportunity to peacefully overthrow Pinochet’s near twodecade reign.
Recruited by the “No” side to design their campaign strategy and make use of their designated fifteen minutes per day of airtime, a savvy young ad exec realizes that not only does his team have to convince voters to vote “No” — they also have to convince the disparate, isolated segments of the population to go to the polls in the first place. Instinctively understanding that the campaign cannot focus on the pain and suffering the Pinochet regime has caused during its fifteen years in power, our adman opts for a different approach.
