documentary tells the story of two Polish missionaries murdered in Peru in
1991. The two Conventual Franciscans called Michał Tomaszek and Zbigniew Strzałkowski
were in their early thirties when they were murdered. The authors of the film
managed to show the intricacies of the missionary life, its ups and downs as
well as the difficulties and dangers that missionaries had to face every day.
The documentary was shot in Poland and in the Peruvian Andes. The story
features sister Berta Hernandez who is the last remaining witness to the
kidnapping of the two Franciscans, bishop Luis Bambaren who is a retired bishop
who had invited the two men to work in Peru, Zbigniew Strzałkowski’s mother who
did not want to talk about those dramatic events for many years as well as the
inhabitants of Pariacoto village, which is the place where the two Franciscans
used to work.
