Award-winning Mexican author Tryno Maldonado personally immerses himself in the lives of the students of Ayotzinapa Normal School—victims in the still-unexplained kidnapping tragedy that took place in September 2014. In this narrative, he relives the events leading up to and during the horrific incident in which 43 students were brutalized at the hands of police and militarized narco-gang members, then vanished without a trace. With in-depth interviews of family members and friends of the "disappeared," as well as investigative reportage of the events leading up to and during the incident, Maldonado has created a viscerally powerful account of this tragedy that, to date, has yet to be resolved.
