MORE THAN JUST WORDS: doing something rather than just talking about a problem. In February 1984, 50 Austrians formed the work brigade February 34 and set off for Nicaragua.
They were moved by their solidarity with the Sandinista Revolution, which ended the decades-long dictatorship of the Somoza clan, only to be threatened by the US policy of invasion. For almost a month, the group worked on construction of a community center under extremely difficult conditions, at the same time getting acquainted with a country in the middle of a process started by a revolution.
This is a film about commitment, coming to terms with reality and a desire for a better world that lives on.
