For years, women on the margins of society were reported missing from Cleveland's Mount Pleasant neighborhood, an area plagued by the scourge of crack cocaine. But police found little time to investigate these disappearances until a rape charge brought them to the home of known sex offender Anthony Sowell. Once there, they found the bodies of eleven women in various stages of decomposition.

How did this killing spree continue, unnoticed, for so long? This award-winning documentary raises troubling questions about the "invisibility" of these women.
