Tagline: Their goal: freedom. Their only hope: an international incident. Their target: the American ambassador.

Plot: A group of Brazilian students kidnap the American ambassador as an act of resistance against their right-wing military government, but the emotional tension soon wears a crack in their starry-eyed idealism. Thoughtful, even-handed direction examines the event from a variety of perspectives. Based on the memoirs of Green Party member Fernando Gabeira. Academy Award Nominations--Best Foreign Film.
