Abstract This documentary tells the story of one of America's largest nonviolent protests: the movement to close WHINSEC, the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation - formerly known as the School of the Americas - a U.S. military establishment that trains Latin American soldiers. In a world where politics, passion, and faith collide, protesters discuss their conversions to activism, the dark side of U.S. foreign policy, and the challenges of protesting since 9/11. Features Susan Sarandon and Martin Sheen.
