Summary
On December 2, 1980, three American missionary nuns (Ita Ford, Maura Clarke, and Dorothy Kazel) and one lay worker (Jean Donovan) were abducted, raped and executed by El Salvadoran National Guardsmen. This documentary covers the initial investigations, the trial of the Guardsmen, and later attempts to bring to justice in United States federal district court the senior Salvadoran generals (Carlos Eugenio Vides Casanova, director of the National Guard, and Jose Guillermo Garcia, head of the ministry of defense), in a civil lawsuit filed by the families of the murdered churchwomen
