As the title screens proclaim, "This film is based on a true story. The incidents and facts are documented. Some of the names have been changed to protect the innocent and also to protect the film." In a Latin American country in the throes of a military coup, Charles Horman, an American journalist and filmmaker living there with his wife Joyce, disappears--never to be seen again. His father Ed always found his son flaky and naïve, and didn't approve of his lifestyle, but he joins Joyce in a wild-goose chase through bureaucratic dead ends. They eventually come to suspect that the American consulate is lying to them about Charles' disappearance and about their country's investment in the coup's success. Ed makes the transition from unquestioning patriot to newly awakened skeptic of U.S. covert activities, a decent citizen who embodies the conscience of a nation

"Cruel Separation is the story of General Pinochet's American backed military coup in Chile on the 11th of September 1973, told through the eyes of four women who lived through it. Angela Jeria de Bachelet - wife of an air force general loyal to Allende, experienced the brutality of the military first hand being held in the Villa Grimadi with her daughter Michelle Bachelet (who assumed as the Chilean President in 2006); Joyce Horman, whose story was made internationally famous in Costa-Gavras Oscar-winning film "Missing"; Hortensia Bussi de Allende - wife of deposed President Salvador Allende; Joan Jara English wife of Chilean political singer songwriter, Victor Jara. Narrated by Donald Sutherland, the film covers the coup from different perspectives and how the four women survived, picked up their lives afterwards and carried on in exile and back in Chile, to tell their stories of love and loss"--IMDb, viewed Sept. 28, 2013

Based on the real-life experiences of Ed Horman, this is the story of an American father of conservative background who comes to a South American country to search for his missing son Charles, a journalist. Ed joins with his daughter-in-law Beth, who like her husband is politically polarized from the father, in prying through the bureaucracy and dangerous political intrigue in search of their son and husband. Little by little, the father comes to realize that his own beloved government is not telling him the truth
