Based on the true events of September 2014, when 43 college students disappeared after a night of violence in the Mexican state of Guerrero, Emilia Cruz is detailed to a national task force to investigate such a crime. She’s the junior member and the only woman.
It’s the Mexican government’s last attempt to discover what happened to 43 students who disappeared after being seized by police in a small Mexican city. Yet the effort, comprised of cops from across the country, seems primed for failure.
As tensions within the task force soar, a diplomat from the United States embassy offers Emilia $50,000 to end the investigation into the missing students.The money could help her hunt for a human trafficker, with whom she shares an awful family secret.
But is the diplomat who he says he is? Does it matter?
