Lina, Angy and Edith, mothers and family members of disappeared loved ones, participate in the exhumation of more than 200 bodies buried in secret by the Morelos Attorney General during a failed war against organized crime. Amidst deafening silence from the authorities, they set about self-training in forensics, cataloguing the bodies of the disappeared in the hope of identifying them for their loved ones and providing a small measure of peace.
Through the voices and actions of these remarkable women, Peredes has crafted a potent and moving film that mourns a nation where ordinary citizens take on the burden of pain and trauma in the face of the complicity and impunity of state power.
