Climage QUE VIVA MAURICIO DEMIERRE
In 1982 Maurice Demierre, an agriculturist from Gruyère, and his partner Chantal Bianchi left for Nicaragua, just as hundreds of other young Europeans who were fascinated by the revolution. But on 16 February 1986 Maurice was ambushed by the Contras and killed. He became a martyr, and Chantal Bianchi unwillingly became a symbol of the revolution.
20 years later, now an actress and director of a theatre troupe, she returns to her past and gets in touch with old comrades. Her plan: to enact a theatre piece on Maurice Demierre's grave in Nicaragua.
