After Reagan’s preposterous invasion of the island of Grenada, the people of Nicaragua have good reason to believe they are next. They dig trenches in backyards all over the country. the The under-15 year olds – the majority of the people - along with their elders, practice fire drills and civil defense as they prepare for a possible air attack. The attack, of course, came, armed to the teeth with U.S. weaponry, across the Salvadoran border in the form of the “contra” army. Meanwhile the video looks at the lives of a number of widely different US citizens who live and work in Nicaragua, some with the Sandanistas and some, against them.
