From the producer of Sully and The Armstrong Lie, this documentary starts with a forgotten massacre during Guatemala’s decades-long civil war in which a young boy was spared, only to be raised by one of the very soldiers who killed his family. Nearly 30 years after the tragedy, it will take a dedicated team to uncover the truth and bring justice to those responsible.

Ryan Suffern, Director
Eric Stover, Faculty Director, Human Rights Center
