In the cities of Juarez, Chihuahua, and Laredo along the Mexico-U.S. border, hundreds of young women in malquiladoras factories are either murdered or abducted year after year. As the crimes continually gone unpunished due to the corruption that extends to the highest level of the Mexican government, grieving parents are frequently forced to accept the devastating fact that they may never know the ultimate fate of their beloved children. In this documentary, filmmakers Alejandra Sanchez and José Antonio Cordero implement a narrative approach that is unique to a woman's vantage point to speak with the journalists and police officials who have covered these countless cases, as well as the factory workers and family members directly affected by the crimes. With their film, directors Sanchez and Cordero aim not only to illuminate a national crisis in Mexico, but also highlight the disheartening lack of support of world neighbor the United States in ensuring that justice is served on behalf of the victims.
