Francisco and Gisela Higgens, I'd like you to meet my right arm here...
...Sarah Williams and her friend, Fielding Pierce.
It's an honor, really. I hope we can be of service to you.
What about you? Another good Catholic?
Not at all.
If it weren't for some great churchmen we wouldn't be here to speak out...
...and our friends, Gustavo and Seny, would be in prison or dead.
So, what do you do?
Fielding wants to be a senator.
Well, well. A senator.
With so many of your politicians showing their corruption...
...I am surprised to see someone from the youth...

...you become part of it.

This country is the best we've been able to do in the history of the planet.
You can't be serious.
We know our government plays rough. Of course it does. All governments do.
But when you compare it to a country like Chile...
...where even the leaders of the opposition come from the upper class...
