The Fugitives Synopsis

In a remote corner of a Latin American rainforest, Father Thomas, a Catholic priest, comes across a badly wounded soldier and takes him to the Indian village where his church is. The Indians, whose traditional way of life is under threat from squatters, are wary of this latest new arrival. Their way of life is already under threat from outsiders: squatters who are burning the forest to clear land; the group of guerrillas hired to protect the squatters; and the army sent to evict them. Venustiano, the proud young head of the village, is determined to protect his people, but feels powerless against the forces around him - and can trust nobody, not even Father Thomas. But his immediate problem is the bloodthirsty jaguar prowling around the village: for Venustiano is the only Indian with a gun, and he means to use it.
