“An amazing film, poignant and powerful... a window onto the lives of America’s immigrants and the human rights crimes that displace them.”
CINE Golden Eagle Award
Best Documentary, Los Angeles International Latino Film Festival
by Patricia Flynn and Mary Jo McConahay
When Iowa housewife Denese Becker returns to the Guatemalan village where she was born, she begins a journey towards finding her roots, but one filled with harrowing revelations. Denese, born Dominga, was nine when she became her family's sole survivor of a massacre of Mayan peasants. Two years later, she was adopted by an American family. Denese's journey home is a voyage of self-discovery and a political awakening.
