Episode Info

"Senorita Extraviada," filmmaker Lourdes Portillo's mournful musings on the unsolved murders of some 270 young women in and around Juarez, Mexico, since 1993. Portillo's mission: "to track down the ghosts," she says, "and to listen to the mystery that surrounds them." Portillo also charts the police investigations of the crimes (and explores allegations of police wrongdoing). But mostly she seeks out the relatives of victims. "Who knows what she went through?" says one father. "I don't want to think about it."
