    Examines the popular movement for land reform in Brazil. The film shows massive demonstrations, marches and protests throughout Brazil, including the establishment of a large camp of some 1500 landless peasants at an unused private farm in Rio Grande do Sul. The story of this movement is told through the experiences of several women participants, including Rose, a young mother whose tragic personal story lends this true- life drama a special poignancy.
