This Academy Award-winning documentary film highlights the growing problem of the thousands of young people reported missing every year.
When 19-year-old Eric Wilson went missing on a trip between Ottawa and Boulder. Colorado, his family naturally turned to the police for help. But the Canadian and American police forces were not interested: to them Eric was just another missing kid. 'Come back in 30 days,' they said. Baffled and frustrated by the indifference of the authorities, the Wilsons hired a private investigator. Through him they finally discovered the tragic truth.
