Justice for my Sister follows one Guatemalan woman during her three-year battle to hold her sister's killer accountable. She encounters many obstacles: a police record that is missing, a judge who is accused of killing his own wife, and witnesses who are too afraid to testify. In the end, it is one of the few cases of domestic violence murder that results in conviction in the last decade in Guatemala.
