On December 2, 1980, three nuns (Ita Ford, Maura Clarke, and Dorothy Kazel) and one lay worker (Jean Donovan) were abducted, raped, and murdered by El Salvadoran National Guardsmen. This documentary covers the initial investigation, the trial of the Guardsmen, and later attempts to bring to justice the military leaders (Carlos Eugenio Vides Casanova, director of the National Guard, and Jose Guillermo Garcia, head of the ministry of defense) who ordered the murders.
