Watch part two

Director: Guillermo Galdos

After 40 years of brutal civil war, Guatemala has tried to make violence a thing of the past - but it has not been entirely successful.

More than 2,000 women have been killed in Guatemala since 2001 and only nine per cent of those cases have been investigated.

The murders have been indiscriminate - women from different backgrounds and of different ages have been killed.

Guatemala is a country where impunity reigns.

Filmmaker Guillermo Galdos went to Guatemala and followed Rosa Franco, the mother of Maria Isabel, who was 15 years old when she was killed in 2003.

Like many others, Rosa is still waiting for justice to be done. She wants to organise the families of the victims to put pressure on the authorities to do more in their investigations.

Rosa regularly goes to the national morgue to leave her telephone number for families of victims to get in touch.

Rosa also often visits the attorney's office to find out what progress has been made in her daughter's case.

Victims like Maria Isabel are found everyday. The prevalence of street gangs, such as the much-feared Mara Salvatrucha gang, is one of the major reasons why so many women are being killed.

Gang members often abuse women - and when drugs and jealousy come into play, the women fall victim to their violence.

Many of the families of the victims continue to be frustrated by the injustices and the lack of results from investigators.

But Rosa Franco is a woman driven by determination and love and has pledged to fight for the justice of Guatemala's forgotten daughters.
