    An emotionally powerful account of Pope John Paul's 1987 visit to Chile, which caused a massive outpouring of political discontent with the Pinochet regime, including emotional appeals to the Pope to support protests over the imprisonment and torture of political prisoners, the lack of political freedom, and widespread hunger and unemployment. The film also includes an interview with Carmen Gloria, one of two teenagers doused with gasoline and set afire by the Chilean military in 1986.
