“If they kill me, I shall rise in the Salvadoran people.”

Romero is a compelling and deeply moving look at the life of Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador. Romero made the ultimate sacrifice in a passionate stand against social injustice and oppression in his country.

This film chronicles the transformation of Oscar Romero from an apolitical, complacent priest to a committed leader of the Salvadoran people.

Acclaimed actor Raul Julia (KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN) stars as Archbishop Romero, a man of God forced by the unspeakable events going on around him to take a stand -- a stand that ultimately leads to Archbishop Oscar Romero's assassination in 1980 at the hands of the revolutionary government Junta.
