Summary
  • A film based on the disappearance of journalist Charles Horman. A father searches for his missing son during the oppressive and violent political chaos of the 1973 Chilean coup. Seeking help from local bureau of the U.S. State Department, family frustration grows as the situation becomes more complex
  • A film based loosely on actual events. A declassified document released in 1999 by the U.S. Government appears to contradict the State Department's official statement on the film, supporting the essential themes of the film. From http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/news/19991008/
