Deeply traumatic memories of the December murders invade Helen (62) when she returns to Suriname to testify against Desi Bouterse. Bouterse is about to be elected the president of Suriname. We see how Helen has fought against the brutality of this dictator in the past, but she ultimately had to pay a heavy price for her resistance.
