Acusó al lider de la revolución sandinista de abuso sexual. Ahora él es presidente de Nicaragua y ella vive en el exilio.

This 24 minutes documentary film explores the life of Zoilamérica Ortega Murillo, adoptive daughter of Daniel Ortega, leader of the Sandinista revolution and the current President of Nicaragua. The film reveals her struggle as a survivor of sexual abuse twenty years after she publicly accused Ortega of rape. We learn about her fate, her family and the impact of the accusation on her 10 years old son.

The film works in two time frames, the past, using archival footage, from the time Zoilamérica made her accusation in 1998, and the present, in 2016, when she is forced into exile in Costa Rica, as Daniel Ortega runs for the presidency for the fourth time with the unconditional support of Rosario Murillo, Zoilamerica’s mother and Ortega’s running mate.

The film, mostly shot inside Zoilamérica’s home, delves into her exile as a form of physical and emotional isolation, which is imposed on her as punishment for daring to seek justice, confront her abuser, her family and the Sandinista party.

This is the first documentary about Zoilamerica’s story.
