Set in the 1980s, Surviving Guazapa is an intense and impressive war film about two men on opposite sides of the civil war who are forced together by circumstances. Together they try to survive in one of the most dangerous battles of the war. Along the way, they happen upon a lost little girl, and suddenly things become more complicated, more dangerous, and, surprisingly, more hopeful. This is a powerful tale of survival in a very dangerous time. English sub-titles.
