Summary
A powerful epic about a man of the sword and a man of the cloth who unite to shield a South American Indian tribe from brutal subjugation by 18th-century colonial empires. The story of Mendoza, a man who turns to God in anguish after murdering his own brother. Whilst a lay brother at a Jesuit mission in South America, conflict between Church and State arises with the threat of closing the mission. This forces him to make the agonizing choice to either obey the papal edict and abandon the native Indians to the jungle and slave traders or to fight the papal order
