    Twenty-four years ago director Fernanda Restrepo's two teenage brothers disappeared. A year later, the family finally learned the worst possible news: the brothers had been kidnapped, tortured and murdered by the Ecuadorean police, and then dumped. Restrepo embarks on the painful journey of recounting her family’s story, and documents yet one more search in Lake Yambo, where the boys’ bodies were dumped.
