The politician and lawyer Antonio Ledezma, who was Mayor of the Metropolitan District of Caracas, narrates with extreme rigor how he was kidnapped, on two occasions, by the security organs of the Venezuelan regime. He describes the characteristics of the prisons used by the dictatorship to repress the opposition, both in the era of Hugo Chávez and now, with the illegitimate president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro. Prisons in which torture is carried out and political prisoners are murdered - crimes that today are investigated by the International Criminal Court, and that Ledezma summarizes in this horrifying true story. Ledezma, now in exile, recounts how he managed to escape, traveling more than a thousand kilometers and dodging more than 40 police and military posts, to cross the border and reach Colombian territory safely. Finally, the author provides valuable testimonies on how citizens struggle in the midst of immense difficulties and risks in order to survive and regain freedom in their country.
