This compelling political thriller is based on the real-life experiences of Ed Horman, and tells the story of an American father of conservative background who comes to a South American country to search for his missing son, a political activist. Ed joins with his daughter-in-law Beth, who, like her husband, is politically polarized from the father, in prying through the bureaucracy and dangerous political intrigue in search of their son and husband. Little by little, the father comes to realize that his own beloved government is not telling him the truth. (Jim Beaver)
