Summary
Ojalá: In Guatemala, at the beginning of the 1980s, tens of thousands of indigenous peasants fled into Mexico to escape the terror of the Guatemalan army. A decade later, negotiations with the government allowed refugees to return to Guatemala. The film shows various refugee camps in Mexico, the difficulties of survival in the camps, the fear by the displaced to return and militarization in the areas of conflict in Guatemala, and contains testimonies of victims of terror. Refugees repeatedly express not only a hope for a safe return, but also a desire for profound changes in their country of origin. Romper el cerco: A year after filming Ojalá in Mexico, the filmmakers travel to Guatemala to meet with refugees on the outskirts of Guatemala City in the Communities of Population in Resistance and in Ixcan Sierra del Quiche, as well as in the first communities of returnees from Mexico. The film shows the limited prospects of the returned refugees
