Noriega: God's Favorite
In December 1989, Panamanian General Manuel "Tony" Noriega, once the most powerful figure in Central America, has become a fugitive and is taking refuge in the Vatican Embassy, much to the consternation of the Papal Nuncio. American troops have surrounded the building with tanks and want to extradite Noriega for narcotics trafficking. Even his own people want him deposed or dead. Noriega prepares to be taken into custody, but before he goes, he makes his confession to Father Jorge. As he tells his life story to the priest, he reflects on significant events: his exposure by former friend Colonel Diaz-Herrera; the unsuccessful coup by his officer Major Giroldi; and the struggle between his mistress Vicky and his strict Catholic wife Felicidad. Looking back, Noriega believes that to have survived this long he must truly be "God's favorite."
