Over 120,000 people are missing in Colombia, and each one has a family that is being forced to live with uncertainty. When a loved one goes missing, families do whatever they can to locate their missing relative, embarking on a journey that often lasts a lifetime.

These are the true stories of ten families' journeys to find out what had happened to their missing loved ones. They all insisted on their right to know, sought to give new meaning to the anguish caused by the disappearance, recover psychologically, and restore dignity to the missing person.

Families of missing people are relentless, but they should not have to search alone. All of us can all play our part in helping to find missing people and support their loved ones.
