A doctor in Paraguay runs a clinic funded by sales of his artwork in America. While in America, he tries to expose the repressive Paraguayan regime. His obsession brings repercussions from the government against his family. Some movies based on true stories seem to over-dramatize events or relationships to convey their points. This movie suffers a bit from caricatures in the familial relationships, and it hurts the pacing in the beginning of the movie. That aside, after some slow development, the characters flesh out and the movie improves a great deal. Overall, a good movie
