SYNOPSIS

Since he arrived in Brazil’s Mato Grosso, Pere Casaldàliga has devoted himself to the fight for the rights of the landless rural peasants and indigenous people. In both cases, his struggle has brought him up against the large estates.

This documentary describes the fight of a group of over 1000 landless peasant families who have been living in makeshift camps for over five years in the middle of nowhere in Mato Grosso, waiting for the Brazilian justice to grant them the ownership of a “fazenda” (rural estate). They are not alone in their struggle, however, as Casaldàliga is guiding them and has become a moral point of reference in defence of the group’s rights.
