Going beyond the headlines, this story, filmed in the fourteen months leading to the Revolution, highlights the years of mounting resentment against a U.S.-backed authoritarian government determined to stay in power at any cost. Embedded inside the turmoil, filmmaker Lillie Paquette followed key opposition figures and young democracy activists as they struggled against extraordinary odds and at great personal risk.
