A formidable documentary about the disastrous Nicaraguan civil war in the 1980s between the US sponsored Contras and the socialist Sandinistas portrayed as die-hard communists by the Reagan administration. The movie confronts two brothers who fought against one another in this civil war. One was recruited as an adolescent by the Contras, the other fought with the Sandinastas. The main reason for the fighting is the deep chasm between a small group of haves and the mass of have-nots. The movie shows also clearly how the US tries to influence national politics (here Nicaragua) via religion. Apparently, even catholicism is too progressive. A must see for all those wanting to understand the world we live in.
