HIT tells the story of Uruguayan songs that have made history. In a journey that spans 50 years, the movie relates the milestones in music and in the life of a country, moments that have moved those who lived through them—and also those who did not. HIT explores how these songs became symbols and survived the passing of time. It also discovers the personal and intimate stories of their composers: those who were forgotten, those who haven’t let go of their past successes, and those for whom recognition came too late.
Through the memories and confessions of some of the most important names in Uruguayan music, HIT brings to life the stories behind the songs that defined a country and that, in some cases, helped to change history.
