In SWEET COUNTRY, a kaleidoscopic survey of Pinochet's Chile, General Pinochet, a state security agent, the mother of a disappeared prisoner, and an exiled political leader are interviewed to illustrate Chile's "National Security Doctrine" according to each's experience. The consequences of the economic model adopted by the government are described by an economist - and a hunger victim. Finally, a priest, political activists, and leaders of labor, student, and women's movements provide a vision of the many facets of the struggle against dictatorship which has - perhaps - been won.

"Pinochet's regime alienated Chileans of almost every sector: the poor, the middle class, students, labor, clergy. Racz is meticulous in providing a forum for each of these."- Village Voice
