Colombia, 1998. Single mother Amparo returns home after a night shift to discover her 18-year-old son Elias has gone missing. She soon learns he has been forcibly conscripted into the army and will be deployed to a dangerous warzone the very next day. In a race against time, Amparo takes to the streets to confront the corrupt, unforgiving military bureaucracy and secure her son’s safety at any cost. Scripted with incredible precision by filmmaker Soto and anchored by a magnetic performance from lead Sanda Melissa Torres, Amparo is a gripping, emotional tale of determination and love in the face of almost certain catastrophe.
