Summary
Burden of Peace tells the remarkable story of Claudia Paz y Paz, the first woman to lead the Public Prosecutor's Office of Guatemala. A country that has been ravaged for years by a devastating civil war, in which nearly 200,000 Mayan Indians were systematically massacred, is currently one of the most violent countries in the world. Drug cartels, corruption, rape, and violence rule everyday Guatemalan life, with little repercussions for offenders. As prosecutor, Claudia seeks justice for her nation's victims, and begins an assault that starts at the top, with government officials. She manages the extraordinary achievement of convicting former dictator Efraín Rios Montt on charges of genocide. Since her first year in office, Claudia bravely gave access to documentary filmmakers, which resulted in an intimate glimpse into the life of a woman who will stop at nothing to break the cycle of violence and seek justice in the name of her nation's people. Her achievements don't come without sacrifices, however, and it isn't long before the government seeks to remove Claudia from office and threatens her life. This intense film shows an unfiltered look at the way those in power will stop at nothing to silence those who threaten their existence. Will Claudia be able to break the cycle of violence and corruption in her country? What will be the burden of the peace she seeks?
