While Gloria, Ninfa and Norma struggled for the release of their husbands, their babies became teenagers and their children turned into adults. This documentary follows the wives of three police officers who have been kidnapped since the turn of the century. For over a decade, these women have fought the indifference of the guerrilla that took their loved ones and the apathy of the Colombian government that refuses to negotiate their freedom. After 13 years of resistance, the FARC finally answers their demands. Now a few weeks after their release, the wives are overwhelmed with the uncertainty of what could happen when their husbands return.
