A fugitive bursts into the home of two Catholic nuns. In an attempt to save his life, they hide him from the marauding military patrols, despite the danger they face if they are caught. KNOCKS AT MY DOOR brings to life the troubled recent history of Latin America through its thrilling portrayal of this deadly encounter between two nuns and the military police. When they are caught, the nuns are forced to face the real-world consequences of their religious beliefs. In the film’s gut-wrenching conclusion, political action and moral resolve merge in a defiant act of courage.

“A tense political drama that poses deep, unanswerable questions.”
– Stephen Holden, NEW YORK TIMES

“***1/2 Gripping, complex, beautifully acted. A tightly wound drama.”
– John Hartle, SEATTLE TIMES

“***1/2 A political drama to rival both Death and the Maiden and The Official Story. An emotionally devastating work guaranteed to touch, stun and disturb.”
- Larry Worth, NEW YORK POST
