Summary
The Mexican border state of Chihuahua and its city Juárez have become notorious to the world over as hotbeds of violence. Drug cartel battles and official corruption result in more murders annually in Chihuahua than in wartorn Afghanistan. Thanks to a culture of impunity, 97 percent of the killings in Juárez go unsolved. Despite a climate of fear, a small group of human rights activists, exemplified by the Chihuahua lawyer and organizer Lucha Castro, works to identify the killers and their official enablers. This is the story of La Lucha rendering in detail the stories of families ripped apart by disappearances and murders--especially gender-based violence--and the brave advocacy, protests, and investigations of ordinary citizens who turned their grief into resistance
