Religious freedoms fight for existance.

If someone wants to know what happens when a country's religious liberties are taken and what will happen this the the one to watch. Very well done. And free as far as history knows, no spin here.

What a movie of the truth that happened in Mexico not too many years ago.

This is the true story of what happened in Mexico, when a communist president came in to office and decided to clear out Christian's. And how those Christian's fought it and gave their lives for freedom to worship and live under God. This is an EXCELLENT movie, see it but keep Kleenex handy.
