Summary
This film documents the grassroots nature of revolutionary democracy and the courage of the ordinary people of El Salvador. In the 1980s, thousands of Salvadorans were forced to flee their homeland to refugee camps in Honduras. After nine years in the camps, they made a decision unprecedented in refugee history. Against their government's wishes, they returned home as communities while the war was still raging. Against the backdrop of the 12-year civil war, we meet individual refugees and hear their stories of the Repatriation Movement they created. We learn about Father Segundo Montes, one of the Jesuits murdered by the military, who inspired the refugees to rebuild their country. Today, many questions remain about demilitarization, land reform and reconstruction of a more democratic society. This film gives the viewer some of the information necessary to begin to address these questions
