Throughout the 1980s, El Salvador - a country rich with coffee growers and rife with poverty - endured a brutal civil war, largely ignored by the international community. While the United States aid supplied the El Salvadoran army, its soldiers ravaged the countryside, killing civilians - many of them women and children.
In 1989, the horrific murder of six Jesuit priests and two women shocked the world into action. Following the U.S. investigation into the atrocity, ENEMIES OF WAR reveals the stories of people embarking on a seemingly impossible path to peace in a country suffering from war.Civil War in El Salvador
