Mercedes Moncada Rodríguez


It is the story of a family that was torn apart by a war, which split up the brothers and placed them on opposite sides. The end of the armed conflict allowed the family members to return to an impoverished country. As they attempt to overcome the memories of war wounds, of the deaths that burden their recollections, of the guilt and the mutual hatred, they are confronted by a disintegrating social fabric that continues to drive them apart. The Rivera family shows how division, religious manipulation, male chauvinism and poverty are part of what the war left behind in Nicaragua. read more
