In 1984, Dr. Clyde Snow traveled to Argentina to help uncover the fates of the people who were forcibly disappeared during the 1970s. Unwilling to work with many of the scientists who had collaborated with the dictatorship, Snow set about to train a new group in the use of forensic anthropology. He eventually met a group of students who would not only help establish accountability for the crimes committed under the Argentine military junta, but to initiate a long relationship with journalists working on parallel tracks to create a fact-based accounting of massacres and state-sponsored crimes in over 30 countries.

After Argentina in the 1980s, the film follows the story of two students, Mimi Doretti and Patricia Bernardi, as they traveled to El Salvador in the early 1990s to investigate the 1981 El Mozote massacre. Then from El Salvador to the team’s 1997 discovery and exhumation in Bolivia of the remains of Ernesto “Che” Guevara, whose whereabouts had been a mystery since his killing 30 years earlier. And finally to Mexico, where the team investigates the 2014 forced disappearance of 43 students in the town of Ayotzinapa. (Dir. by Bernardo Ruiz, 2023, USA, in English and Spanish with subtitles, 80 mins., NR)
