Filmmaker Pamela Yates turns her camera on the battle between Peru's Shining Path rebels and government forces. Fueled by the idea of unseating what it saw as a government of the privileged, Shining Path employed widespread violence as it rose in the 1980s. As the leftist group maintained its influence into the '90s, President Alberto Fujimori used undemocratic methods to crack down on Shining Path. For Yates, the conflict is also a lens through which to examine America's post-9/11 government.
