From the red-light districts in Ciudad Juarez to remote villages hidden away in the mountains of Chihuahua comes a tale of one of the darkest crimes to be recorded in the history of humankind. If I Die in Juarez traces the lives of three young women - Evita, a street child; Petra, a maquiladora worker; and Mayela, a Tarahumara Indian girl - who together uncover Juarez's forbidden secret: the abduction and murder of young women. Bound together by blood, honor, an ancient chant, and a mysterious photo, the girls bring the murderous streets of Juarez to life.
