Discover the Mysterious Plot of 42 Days of Darkness on Netflix
42 Days of Darkness follows the story of a woman who does everything she can to unravel the mysterious disappearance of her sister.
“To find her sister, a woman leads a frantic search in Chile amid media frenzy and police investigation. Inspired by a real case”, states the official synopsis of the series on Netflix.
For its realistic story, 42 Days of Darkness is compared to other Netflix productions about true crimes, such as the excellent Mindhunter and the terrifying Killer Clown.
The plot of the crime thriller begins on the morning of June 29, 2010, when Verónica Montes disappears from her home in the Altos del Lago condominium, in an affluent area of Pucón, in southern Chile.
Veronica’s disappearance is made even more mysterious by the circumstances of the crime. The young woman’s car is found with the keys in the ignition, and her most valuable objects of residence remain untouched – which denies the hypothesis of robbery or theft.
In this complicated scenario, the protagonist Cecilia Montes (Verónica’s sister) begins a journey in search of answers. In her investigation, the character is forced to deal with police neglect and press harassment.
