Returning to Nicaragua a decade after the revolution, photographer Susan Meiselas and filmmakers Rogers and Guzzetti survey the life of the people there, who have survived years of economic isolation and attacks by the Contras. Meiselas searches as well to see what has become of the people she had photographed ten years earlier, whose images formed the content of her critically acclaimed book on the revolution. What results is a remarkable meeting of the artistic and the real in a portrait of the continued vitality of the Nicaraguan people amidst the devastation of war.
