From Oscar award winners Tornasol Films, based in the real untold story of how the CIA and the El Salvador government coerced the only witness of a horrible crime, Spanish award winning Director Imanol Uribe brings the incredible story of a strong woman who by refusing to commit perjury places her life and her families at enormous risk. Juana Acosta (PERFECT STRANGERS, CARLOS) -in what is possibly the performance of her life- gives voice to Lucia who is still living under protection. With a powerful narrative and amazing performances, Uribe makes us feel every minute of the ordeal of these people who preached for peace, justice and truth.
During a night of 1989, in the middle of the Salvadoran civil war, six Jesuit priests were murdered at the UCA University. The news has an immediate international repercussion since their contribution was key in the foreseeable peace agreement after a decade of bloody war. Who killed them? The government immediately blamed the guerrillas but an eyewitness debunked the official version. Her name is Lucía and she works as a cleaning employee at the UCA. She has seen who were the real killers: the army. Now she will have to choose between testifying for the truth or protecting her family.
