Roses in December

1982 NR

In December 1980, El Salvador's government security force gunned down lay missionary Jean Donovan and three American nuns. Ana Carrigan and Bernard Stone's award-winning documentary explores Donovan's short but meaningful life. Her story, from her affluent upbringing to her passionate work and untimely death at age 27, is told against the backdrop of the United States' devastating political involvement in Central America.
