9. FLIGHT: The rebellion of the grandchildren of the Sandinistas

Thousands of Nicaraguans have fled to Costa Rica after the government unleashed a manhunt for demonstrators, students, doctors and human rights activists. After the "Operation Cleanup" executed by police and pro-government paramilitary groups, those who stood in the front lines of the protests against Daniel Ortega are hunted down house by house.
