Summary
When the government collapses in southern Mexico, an atheist group, known as the Red Shirts, assumes control. As part of their anti-God rhetoric, they outlaw worship and systematically hunt down and murder priests. Now, Mexico's last remaining priest must overcome his cowardly ways and stand up for his beliefs
Summary
The time is 1938 and the place is one of Mexico's southern states. They are undergoing a religious purge, arresting every Catholic priest they can find, charging them with treason and then killing them in a firing squad. Those that aren't caught get married or go into hiding. One such priest has tried to escape through the jungles, villages, and plantations. A policeman is after him and shooting a hostage in each village until someone turns in the priest
