Synopsis / Plot
Deep in the Peruvian rainforest a policeman is killed. The government rounds up the usual suspects and accuses indigenous leaders of murder and terrorism. But there are no actual witnesses, and no one seems to care about the torture and ensuing revenge murder carried out by the police commandos. The indigenous people are poor and despised by the majority public, so their chances of winning a courtroom battle are next to none. But a young indigenous leader, Fachin, refuses to give in. With help from a local British missionary, he contacts a well-known Peruvian defence lawyer who specializes in indigenous cases and starts fighting back.
