Film Series Based on Francisco Goldman's book and executive produced by Oscar-winner George Clooney and Grant Heslov, this film tells the story of the 1998 murder of Guatemalan human rights activist Bishop Juan Gerardi and the subsequent investigation by the church that uncovered a web of conspiracy and murder, entangling the upper echelons of the government.
