  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Costa Verde
      Tom's friend Quintaro is a freedom fighter in the fictitious country of Costa Verde, which is Spanish for Green Coast.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (opening commentary)
      Tom: Most of us are shaped by destiny, pushed and pulled by the powerful forces that we call history. A few shape their own destinies, grab history, put their stamp on an era, a nation, a people. The first time I met one of these great men, I stood face to face with him and knew he would change the world. The last time we met, I watched him bleed like an ordinary man.

    • Tom: It's been a long time you know.
      Quintaro: Yes. but Ghandi did not liberate India in one day, or in a decade Thomas.

    • (closing commentary)
      Tom: Let us hope that the desire for freedom beats stronger than the heart of a single man. My friend Quintaro wanted nothing more than freedom. If his spirit prevails, perhaps no more young people will have to shed their blood on a cold warehouse floor many miles form home.
