Director: Jason Blalock

Synopsis: In the 1980s, a bloody civil war between the socialist Sandinista government and US-backed Contras ravaged Nicaragua. Despite the danger, thousands of Americans disobeyed White House warnings and traveled to this Central American nation, determined to lend their skills and labour to the revolutionary Sandinista cause. Blalock tells the story of a small group of controversial U.S engineers who went further than anyone expected, and paid the ultimate price.
