Alsino, a young Nicaraguan boy, lives in a war-torn area. Amidst conflict, he tries to embrace childhood but is drawn into the war’s reality. A chopper flight with a US advisor leaves him unimpressed. Witnessing soldiers’ cruelties he becomes sympathetic to rebels and fully immersed in the conflict.

MUBI's take

Made at the time of the Sandinistas’s overthrow of the Somoza, Miguel Littín’s Oscar®-nominated coproduction is a white-knuckle tale that takes place amid the rising dust of the Nicaraguan Revolution. Starring Dean Stockwell, this ambitious coming-of-age sees the child as hope for change.
