People go on missions to save young girls from danger. But sometimes they get so caught up in the mission that it overshadows the girl herself. This week on This American Life: An earthquake hits Mexico City, a school collapses, and trapped under the rubble is a little girl named Frida. She becomes a national obsession. Workers rush in to pull her out and find something completely unexpected.
