In a parallel plot line we see Nick as a young boy and his family as they struggle to survive in the occupied Greek hillside. The plot lines converge as Nick's investigations bring him closer to the answers. Written by

This movie vilified,mostly by Communists, because it exposes the Truth of how they were pensioned for their War Crimes, is also a deeply moving TRUE story about a mothers love and sacrifice, and a Son seeking Justice. It depicts the true collaboration of Communists, in the region, to take over Greece at the close of World War 2, rather than the propaganda that they fought the Nazis. In brutal detail New York Times writer Nicholas Cage exposes the 'good' life granted to these War Criminals, by the then 'Socialist' Government Years later when it came to power. He searches for the murderers, and when he finds them, his decision not to stoop to their level is powerful. Great Performances by John Malkovich as Nicholas Cage, and Kate Nelligan as Eleni.
