Searching for Karen
A story I've followed since I was in college. Searching for Karen is the story of a mother's search for her daughter, a student activist abducted by military forces while she was conducting her thesis in the countryside. It offers a look into the country's longstanding culture of impunity and how it affects people like Mrs. Concepcion Empeno.
