Journey to the Heart of the Condor

From 1975 to 1977, Emily Creigh was a Peace Corps volunteer in Paraguay. During that time, Dr. Martín Almada was falsely imprisoned and tortured by the Stroessner dictatorship as an “enemy of the state.”

Four decades later, their compelling stories are woven together in this inspiring tale of patriotism, sacrifice, and redemption in the heart of Operation Condor, the US-backed South American political repression campaign.
