The history of the brutal Indonesian occupation of East Timor is explored through the death of 21 year-old Kamal Bamadhaj. Bamadhaj was one of 200 non-violent protestors murdered on November 12, 1991 by the Indonesian military for demonstrating against the occupation. Through interviews with Bamadhaj's family and friends, as well as witnesses to the massacre, the film follows Helen Todd's struggle for justice in her son's death.
