Synopsis
The dramatization of the story of Jean Donovan, who evolved from a free-spirited college student to a deeply committed lay missionary, giving up her family, friends and finance to work on behalf of the poor in El Salvador. In December 1980, she and three Maryknoll nuns were slain by five members of El Salvador's National Guard. Initially called "Roses" and then called "In December the Roses Will Bloom Again," it united Melissa Gilbert, in her fourth starring movie for her Half-Pint Productions, with Martin Sheen as an Irish priest who was Donovan's inspiration, Mike Farrell as American Ambassador Robert White, and Rene Enriquez as assassinated El Salvador church leader, Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero.
