Summary: Las Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo is an Argentinian human rights group made up of grandmothers committed to finding their lost grandchildren, who they believe were stolen by the government during the country's military dictatorship. Between 1976 and 1983 as many as 30,000, dissidents-now known as "the disappeared"-were kidnapped and presumed killed, with hundreds of new mothers among them. Through interviews with members of Las Abuelas, recovered grandchildren who were raised by people sympathetic to the military regime, and many others, this program tells the story of these determined women and of the formerly missing as they explore their true identities.
