In September 2008 a group of mothers from Soacha, Colombia, reported the disappearance of their sons. An investigation revealed that the Colombian Army had rounded up and executed innocent young men for financial rewards offered by the Colombian Government. Such rewards were paid to the army for the pro-capita killing of guerrilla members. To earn more money the army killed young men indiscriminately. Gloris Martinez, María Tejada, Flor Hernandez portrayed here are still seeking for justice for their sons.
