This film chronicles the story of Maryknoll missioner Marty Shea as he accompanies Maya farming communities fleeing civil war and massacre by the Guatemalan military in the jungles of El Petén. After more than 20 years in refugee camps in Mexico, today they are gradually returning home with government promises of land-part of an ongoing indigenous rights struggle. The path to livelihood recovery and community reconstruction is arduous, but Maya culture is resilient and returnees hope for a peaceful future.
