Abstract:

They call Ciudad Juarez, a city in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico, "the serial killers' playground." In the past decade, over 500 women have been murdered there. Most were abducted, raped, and tortured before they were killed. So many women have died that a new word has been invented to describe what is happening: "femicidios," the murder of women. Despite an international outcry, the killings have continued. There are even claims the police are protecting the girls' murderers. What has made Ciudad Juarez so dangerous for women? Many suspect that, since the city is home to the world's second largest drug cartel, drug barons are involved. This hard-hitting documentary investigates.
