Cast:Cast: Robert Carlyle, Oyanka Cabezas, Subash Sing Pall, Stewart Preston, Gary Lewis, Scott Glenn and Margaret McAdam

Carlyle plays George, a Scottish bus driver who falls for one of his passengers, a Nicaraguan refugee named Carla (Cabezas). This romantic tale turns into a story of political awakening when George, having agreed to help her search for a former lover who was captured and tortured by the Contras, accompanies Carla, a Sandinista supporter, to her homeland. Carla's story is poignant and George's experience of culture shock in a country torn apart by guerilla warfare is powerful. Glenn plays a CIA man turned human rights activist who serves as a mouthpiece for much of the film's impassioned glorification of the Sandinistan cause.
