During the period of 1964 to 1985, Brazil lived a military dictatorship. In the 60s, the Dominican friars Tito, Betto, Fernando and Ivo help leftist organizations. However, they are arrested and tortured by the despicable Chief of DOPS Fleury, who is trying to arrest the leader Carlos Marighella. Tito and Fernando do not resist the violent torture and betray Marighella, who is ambushed and executed by Fleury. In 1973, in France, the exiled friar Tito is unable to overcome his trauma and depression and commits suicide in the Convent of La Tourette. Written by

One of the greatest movies I have seen since Schindler's list - Marvellous!
I had the pleasure and the Honor of being invited to the Festival of Brasilia this year (2006)and also had the chance of seeing one of the greatest films I have ever seen and experienced. I also had the Honor of meeting a great Director Helvetico Ratton, two marvelous Executive Producers Guilherme Fiuza and Tininho Fonseca and a marvelous group of tremendous great actors. The movie deserves to be seen internationally not only because it is a great movie but because it also tells the compelling true story of freedom and belief and also, the events and people which shaped a Nation, during the years of military dictatorship.
