Justicia para mi hermana (2012)
31min · Documentary, Crime · 14 October 2012
Adela, 27, left home for work one day and never returned. Her ex-boyfriend beat her until she was unrecognizable and left her at the side of the road. Her story is all too familiar in Guatemala, where 6,000 women have been murdered in the last decade; only 2% of the killers were sentenced. Determined to see that Adela's killer is held accountable, her sister Rebeca, 34, takes on Guatemala's notoriously corrupt legal system. Completely transformed by her three-year fight, Rebeca emerges as a feminist leader in her rural community with a message for others: justice is possible.
