In the 1980s as Guatemala’s civil war was at its worst, Las Cruces was a
farmers' village at the base of a beautiful volcano. Nestled deep in the
wilderness, it was the target of a brutal military attack led by an
elite corps of government
troops. Las Cruces is an incredible tale of war and death, unknown to all
but to those who were there and lived through it. In this film, two of
shed light on the horror that took place that fateful night.
