The 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 Lius 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.
