Every Sunday morning, men and women in captivity deep in the Colombian jungle listen to messages from their families on The Voices of Kidnapping radio show. Captive Radio tells the story of two families that use the unique radio program to communicate with their loved ones held hostage by rebel guerrilla groups in Colombia. The film follows the harrowing personal accounts of the police major, Guillermo Solórzano, and the parents of Juan Camilo Mora, who have waited six years for news of their kidnapped son. Their stories represent the thousands of people marred by kidnapping who desperately seek a way to cope with separation and find it through The Voices of Kidnapping.
