About:
Investigators seek justice for the victims of a state-sponsored Guatemalan massacre.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
During Guatemala’s 36-year-long civil war, an estimated 200,000 civilians were killed or disappeared. Among these were the 200 residents of the rural village of Dos Erres, who were massacred by an elite government commando unit in 1982. Two young boys survived to be raised, unwittingly, by the very soldiers who slaughtered their families. Suffern’s film follows the quest to finally find justice for the people of Dos Erres.
