Based on personal testimonies FROZEN HAPPINESS recounts the struggle of a mother and her children to gain the freedom of their husband and father. Falsely charged with the assassination of New York-based Indy-reporter Brad Will, APPO (Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca) supporter and community activist Juan Manuel Martinez endured sixteen months of unjust imprisonment. With the support and solidarity of participants in the 2006 popular uprising and members of APPO the struggle of the family turned into a broader campaign demanding the freedom of Juan Manuel and an end to impunity. Set against the first democratic change of government in eighty years the video bears witness to the power of solidarity and independent mobilization.
