It is El Salvador, 1989, three years before the end of a brutal civil war that took 75,000 lives. Maria Serrano, wife, mother and guerrilla leader is on the frontlines of the battle for her people and her country. With unprecedented access to FMLN guerrilla camps, the filmmakers dramatically chronicle Maria's daily life in the war as she organises people and helps plan a major offensive. Maria brings viewers to the heart of the fight for a more just society. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the film is available for the first time on DVD.
