At the end of the nineteen-thirties, a small band of men and their Christero coronel refuse to accept amnesty and instead continues their fight against religious persecution and their right to practice their faith. Matias Meyer’s The Last Christeros, tells the valiant story of these soldiers of Christ, the last men standing against the Mexican army, with diminishing food and provisions, as they continue their journey against an arid and forbidding landscape.
México, años treinta: Un coronel cristero y sus últimos hombres, se resisten a dejar la revolución cristera. Estos hombres son campesinos católicos, perseguidos por el gobierno. No tienen municiones, el apoyo no llega y la vida en la sierra es cada vez más difícil: la guerra está perdida. Aunque el indulto sea una opción, su compromiso con Dios está hecho.
