In the final film of her acclaimed Guatemalan trilogy, Pamela Yates (GRANITO, WHEN THE MOUNTAINS TREMBLE) chronicles the struggle of the country's indigenous Mayan population to hold their government accountable for a history of racism, corruption and genocide. Covering the recent trial of the former president Rios Montt and the subsequent uprising against then-sitting president Otto Perez Molina, the film focuses not only on historical injustices, but also highlights how modern resistance movements have given the Mayan people new hope in their centuries-old fight for justice and equal rights.
