With the Shining Path guerilla movement in decline, the government in Peru set up a Commission for Peace and Reconciliation to hear the testimonies of those who had suffered in the war. Framed by the Commission's hearings in Ayacucho, this film follows one of the witnesses back to her village in the mountains and hears of the terrible atrocities that were committed there.
