After an intense and long nine-year search, Miren discovered that the kidnappers’ videos prove that Amaya is alive and were captured on videotape.
Since few people still use these cameras, Miren goes to a video store and the owner reveals that only a woman who lives in a remote and isolated area has repaired one of these VHS cameras.
The suspect is named Iris and before Amaya’s disappearance she was a fertility patient who decided to kidnap Amaya as the only way to become a mother.
During the years Iris had Amaya, she managed to convince her that her name was really Julia, that she should never approach strangers, and that she should always hide her presence if anyone came to the house.
Pretending to report on people who live far from civilization, Mirren manages to talk to Iris, enter her home, and even confirm her suspicion that the woman is the kidnapper and that Amaya is living with her.
Iris suspects that she has been found and at night tries to escape in her car with Amaya, but Mirren watches her all day waiting for the police, so she chases the kidnapper, until Iris drives off a cliff.
Iris dies in the crash and Amaya blames Miren, even pointing a shotgun at her, but the journalist manages to calm her down and make her realize that her name is not Julia, but Amaya, and that she has lived as her “daughter”. kidnapper.
Back at the police station, Amaya meets her real parents, but it’s not all happy, because the little girl doesn’t recognize them and now only responds to Julia’s name.
