Once home, Carla's nightmarish memories take over, and Carla and George are thrown into the thick of the US war against the Sandinistas. A mystery develops over where Carla's boyfriend is, and the key to his whereabouts may be Carla's friend Bradley, a bitter American aid worker.

I am Nicaraguan by birth, but stayed away from politics while I lived
in that country, although my family and myself experienced the anxiety,
and sometimes the horror, of living under a totalitarian regime, even
one supported by the US, such as the Somoza dynasty. Although I left
for the USA three years before the final triumph of the Sandinista
revolution, I visited the country many times during the Sandinistas'
10-year rule, and saw first-hand the good and bad sides of the
revolution, as well as the economic hardships caused by President
Reagan's (though Olly North and the CIA) support of the
counter-revolutionary thugs called "contras", who decimated a whole
generation of young people in that unfortunate country.
I watched this movie last night and was impressed by how true to life
Ken Loach managed to keep it. Although to some people it might appear
as propaganda, my own experience tells me that everything that was
depicted in the film (as far as the situation in Nicaragua in 1987 is
concerned) was very realistic. The enthusiasm, especially among the
poor and young for the revolution was true, I saw it with my own eyes.
The fervor of the literacy campaign volunteers was admirable, even
though some of them were targeted as "strategic" targets by the contra
forces. Also targeted for destruction were health centers (which had
never before existed in many remote villages), grain silos, tobacco
sheds, etc., in the areas bordering Honduras, which is where Carla's
family lives. The nighttime contra raid was very realistic, I must say,
even though I myself never had to live through one. But I knew people
who did. The cruelty of the contras depicted in the movie was well
documented by American and other media at the time.
Oyanka Cabezas' portrayal of the young woman is remarkable, and Robert
Carlyle's young bus driver is spot-on. The role of Scott Glen as a
reformed CIA agent, although good, is the only one I could find fault
with for being a little political and perhaps preachy, but I think his
comments were based on facts.
In summary, I enjoyed the film very much. You don't have to be
political to appreciate injustice, poverty, love and human decency.
These human vices and virtues are all very well portrayed in this
story. Kudos to all involved in its making.
