On December 5, 1990, a group of workers who were building a hotel in the center of Buenos Aires saw how Jorge Sivak jumped into the void without giving them time to stop him. A student leader, urban guerrilla, defense attorney for political prisoners, and himself a political prisoner and exile, Jorge Sivak never abandoned the family business, a small empire created thanks to his father's business skills and the secret funds of the Communist Party. He was left in charge—no business knack—when his older brother was murdered in the most notorious kidnapping of the 1980s: the Sivak Affair. His son, Martín Sivak, who was 15 years old at the time of the suicide, rebuilds a life that shone and died before his eyes. In 2017, Sivak, who is now the journalistic director of elDiarioAR, published El Salto de Papá, which has sold 18 editions in Latin America and Spain and was chosen book of the year by a dozen prestigious media outlets. It is expected that in 2023, when the film is released, the book will be published in other languages.
