Noehmí was taken to from her home when she was just a girl, and sent to work as domestic employee for an upper-middle class family in Bogota. This is her story: how she survived years of abuse, neglect, and misfortune; and how, decades later, an act of solidarity and daring helped bring her some measure of justice.
Producer Camila Segura has been working on this investigation for nearly a year. Nohemí’s story and her groundbreaking legal case made national news in Colombia, and we are honored to share it with you.
