    Synopsis

    In the 18th century “Jesuit priest Father Gabriel enters the Guarani lands in South America with the purpose of converting the natives to Christianity. He soon builds a mission, where he is joined by Rodrigo Mendoza, a reformed slave trader seeking redemption. When a treaty transfers the land from Spain to Portugal, the Portuguese government wants to capture the natives for slave labour. Mendoza and Gabriel resolve to defend the mission, but disagree on how to accomplish the task.”
