Death of a Son - The Killing of Michael Dwyer

In 2009 a young man from Tipperary, Michael Dwyer, was shot dead by a secret police unit in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Accused of being tied in with terrorist group activity against Bolivia and its President, Evo Morales, Michael Dwyer never had the opportunity to answer questions or refute any of the reports subsequently written about him. His mother Caroline has spent much of the last six years trying to find out what happened to her son. In this very personal film she travels to Bolivia, Brazil, Washington and Brussels as she searches for answers and looks for an international inquiry into why her son died such a terrible death so far from home.
