This hard-hitting documentary tells the hidden story of the tens of thousands of men, women and children disappeared by the Assad regime into a network of clandestine detention centres. Weaving together the powerful personal testimonies of three survivors and damning evidence smuggled out of Syria, the film follows victims, family members and international war crimes investigators as they desperately campaign for the release of the disappeared and fight to bring the perpetrators to justice.
