Santiago, Chile - September 1973.

Mario Cornejo (Alfredo Castro) works at a morgue, typing out reports on autopsies performed by the coroners. Leading up to the military coup where Salvador Allende dies, he gets involved in a love affair with a dancer from the cabaret Bim Bam Bum.

Set in one of Chile's darkest and bloodiest periods, POST MORTEM weaves together three cinematographic, aesthetic and ethical strands - the testimonial, the historical and the fictional - seeking its poetic rhythm in the confusion, absurdity and aftermath of a journey with no purpose.
