Summary The true story of a death in East Timor and the power of a mother's grief. In 1991, Helen Todd received the phone call that every parent dreads. Half a world away, in East Timor, her son Kamal had been shot. Kamal's tragic death at the hands of the Indonesian military set Helen on a course that would span five countries and four years, and which culminated in a landmark legal case in a United States court. Independence for East Timor seemed a long shot when Kamal was killed for it - but now it is not. A just cause can never be a lost cause; Kamal taught me that." - Helen Todd. "Whether total genocide occurs in East Timor or not depends not only on the will of the East Timorese people, but on the will of humanity, of us all." - Kamal Bamadhaj, 1970-1991. "The story of the courage of a mother and son, seeking justice for East Timor. It deserves our full support." - John Pilger. --Kanopy
