(Rome, Italy) Father Bertuli ostracized from Mozambique because he spoke out against church hierarchy's refusal to publicize village massacres. Portuguese troops kill Africans. Villages are really concentration camps and are under military surveillance by Portuguese troops. Portuguese massacre whole villages or decapitate 1 person if they believe guerrillas have been sympathized with by villages. Film shows horrors shot by missionaries and American journalists.
