Gen. Efraín Ríos Montt was a military leader in Guatemala during the early 1980s. He was responsible for over 200,000 deaths of Mayans. The filmmaker Pamela Yates was making the documentary "When the mountains tremble" there at the time, and her film was later entered as evidence by lead counsel Almudena Bernabeu during the genocide trials of seven Guatemalan military officials. This film tells the story of five main characters whose destinies collided in the Guatemala of 1982.
