True story of courage confronting terrorism and social strife
7 May 1999 | by gonz30See all my reviews

This Peruvian-Spanish co-production is based on the real life story of Maria Elena Moyano, a woman fighting against all odds in her country, Peru: Latin machismo, terrorism by the infamous "Shining Path", threats from policemen, a government distrustul of her intentions,...all on behalf of an oppressed population, additionally burdened by poverty, and lack of basic infrastructure. As the different groups start discrediting her, she becomes the target of attacks from all sides. The picture is a rarity in Latin American, where stories of female COURAGE abound but are seldom told, and never before like this on film.
