Plot Summary
Director Constantin Costa-Gavras made his English-language film debut with this political thriller, based on a true story. Although the nation depicted is never named directly, the action clearly takes place in Chile after the military coup.| "Missing" centers around the disappearance of Charles Horman, an American expatriate who lives with his wife Beth in South America. One night, armed soldiers enter their home and drag him away. In desperation, Beth decides to contact Charles's father, Ed, and ask for help.| In contrast to his left-wing daughter-in-law, Ed is staunchly patriotic. But as he gets the runaround from both American and Chilean officials, Ed receives a cold, hard lesson in political reality... and learns some ugly truths about US involvement in Latin America.
