In 2006 Mexico declared war on drug trafficking and since then violence spread like wildfire throughout the country. Until today more than 120,000 people have died violently and thousands were forced into exile, kidnapped or disappeared.
Before we are Forgotten is a real-life documentary about those who experienced this war, which still continues today. The same story and their suffering is told by parents, brothers and children of the victims. The background to this terrible conflict, which left no corner of the country unaffected, is told by well-known Mexican sociologists, writers, artists, journalists and politicians, and the documentary gives us a glimpse into the gravest wound Mexico has ever suffered.
