Diplomatic Immunity (1991)

Film details


An ambitious career diplomat is assigned to oversee Canada's aid programme to El Salvador, only to find that a Canadian-built housing compound for homeless peasants is little more than a military brothel. She attempts to put this to rights but gets gradually more caught up in the difficult politics of the country.
