Between 1991 and 1995, approximately 40.000 persons in the former Yugoslavia were reported missing as a result of the war. After the Dayton Peace Agreement, then US President, Bill Clinton initiated the creation of the ICMP, the International Commission for Missing Persons.
The problem of missing persons does not respect borders, whether persons are missing as a result of conflict, human rights violations, disasters, organized violence, or refugee flows and migration. Yet there is still very limited understanding of this global problem.
This ensemble documentary constantly switches between the hopeful stories of people whose relatives were found and identified and the devastating accounts of those whose loved ones are still missing.
