Mexican filmmaker Carlos Carrera directs this fictionalised account of the unsolved rapes and murders of hundreds of women in the violent Mexican border town of Ciudad Juarez. Since the mid-1990s, young women have been mysteriously disappearing in and around the town, only to turn up later as corpses in the surrounding desert, having been raped and murdered. Most of the victims are low-paid workers drawn to the town by the possibility of work at American-owned factories. When Mexican police officer Blanca Bravo (Ana de la Reguera) is drafted in to investigate the situation, she runs into resistance from the authorities and local businessmen.
