DescriptionNICARAGUA, DREAM OF A FREE COUNTRY is a positive and refreshing look at women's participation in Nicaragua's national struggle for self-determination. The film is not about poverty, class, illiteracy and disease but about women's strength and courage. No one believes that the Sandinista government is perfect but everyone interviewed is committed to the struggle for continued political change - change that includes decision-making by women at every level of their personal and political lives.
