Shot over four years, beginning with the coup itself, Resistencia: The Fight for the Aguan Valley follows the most daring arm of the coup resistance movement, the farmers of the Aguan Valley. With the president that promised to help them get land overthrown they decide to take control of 10,000 acres of palm oil plantations belonging to the country’s most powerful landowner. Located on some of the most fertile land in all of Central America, the farmers announce that they have no plans of ever giving the plantations back.
