So many people, catechists and priests were killed in the diocese of Quiche, Guatemala, in protest the bishop and remaining priests left the diocese – surely the first time this has ever happened in a supposedly Christian state. About one million Guatemalans have been dislodged from their homes, 15,000 forced to flee into exile and perhaps 35,000 killed in the past few years (1984). Yet little has been seen and heard of this civil war – simply because cameras can rarely get near enough to record it. Radharc slipped in and out secretly with material for this film.
