The Peruvian anti-terrorist army takes control of a far away and unknown small village isolated in the Andes by the terrorist militia "Sendero Luminoso" (Shining Path), during the dirty war in Peru at 80's decade.
Amazing, only for theaters. Realistic. You may think, it must has been that way. Rigorous, something unusual in historical movies. If you look for Hollywood here, wrong place. I do love Hollywood, anyway. Something odd: no or little music. The sound of the wind among the stones, the valleys, the mountains and the towns, animals, soldiers, people, nature and guns is the perfect soundtrack in this case. Main character is such intense: his mission is always in his eyes, always fighting, always angry, always tense. You would not say this movie comes from a third world country. I suggest a five minutes research on wiki about this fairly unknown episode of South American History. Open your mind, it is different, but good cinema.
