Description
Israel Ticas is the only criminologist working in one of Latin America's most dangerous countries, El Salvador. He has made it his mission to find the hundreds of missing teenagers who have fallen victim to the country's brutal gang conflict. He travels from one crime scene to another, always in danger of becoming a victim himself. The filmmakers hold nothing back showing us the grim and graphic realities of his work and his devotion to finding all those lost. - JM
