In El Salvador, the new bishop speaks out against the death squads and the terror campaign the government is using in an attempt to crush the guerilla war that is being waged against them. This is seen as disloyality and the number of priests attacked goes up and even churches are shut down by the government. Based on a true story, Romero was assassinated in March, 1980.Written by

Archbishop Oscar Romero:
I'd like to make an appeal in a special way to the men in the army. Brothers, each one of you is one of us. We are the same People. The farmers and peasants that you kill are your own brothers and sisters. When you hear the words of a man telling you to kill, think instead in the words of God, "Thou shalt not kill!"

A true story about a man of God, and of his people
What an amazing story. In a movie world full of so many stories that have very little meaning, it is inspiring to watch a movie about a man that inspired a nation. I have always loved the story of this great man's life. After watching the movie, so will you. I have watched this movie by myself, with friends and now I plan to watch it with my children. I want them to see what one man's passion can do for a nation in turmoil. Many Latino nations celebrate his life as a model of what a modern Christian should be like. I celebrate his life as a model of what I aspire to be. The movie is filled with passion and a great cast that makes every incident, every scene and every word come alive. The setting is true to the historical setting of the time when this man of God lived and worked with the people of El Salvador. The story line and acting are easy to follow and the characters are so amazingly played that you will fall in love with them. Watch this movie. I seriously recommend it.
