Here is the synopsis for “For Greater Glory”:

What price would you pay for freedom? In the exhilarating action epic “For Greater Glory,” an impassioned group of men and women each make the decision to risk it all for family, faith and the very future of their country. The film’s adventure unfolds against the long-hidden, true story of the 1920s Cristero War: the daring people’s revolt that rocked 20th-century North America.

Academy Award nominee Andy Garcia headlines an acclaimed cast as General Gorostieta: the retired military man who at first thinks he has nothing personal at stake as he and his wife (Golden Globe winner Eva Longoria) watch Mexico fall into a violent civil war. Yet the man who hesitates in joining the cause will soon become the resistance’s most inspiring and self-sacrificing leader.

He begins to see the cost of religious persecution on his countrymen and transforms a rag-tag band of rebels into a heroic force. The general faces impossible odds against a powerful and ruthless government, but it’s those he meets on the journey – youthful idealists, feisty renegades and, most of all, one remarkable teenager named Jose – who reveal to him how courage and belief are forged even when justice seems lost.

Director Dean Wright brings a visual power honed from years as a leading Hollywood effects guru – on such blockbusters as “Titanic,” “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy and the “Chronicles of Narnia” – to this real-life tale that has never been told on screen before. The film is written by Michael Love. The producer is Pablo Jose Barroso.

Garcia and Longoria lead a stellar, multi-national cast including the legendary Oscar winner Peter O’Toole, rapidly rising star Oscar Isaac (“Drive”), recording star and actor Ruben Blades (“Safe House”), Bruce Greenwood (“Star Trek,” “Super 8”), Nestor Carbonell (“The Dark Knight Rises,” TV’s “Lost”), Bruce McGill (“Lincoln”), Santiago Cabrera (TV’s “Heroes,” “Che”), Oscar-nominated Catalina Sandino Moreno (“Maria Full of Grace”) and Eduardo Verástegui (“Bella”).

Shooting on historic locations throughout Mexico, the behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Eduardo Martinez Solares (“Bad Habits”), Oscar-nominated editor Richard Francis-Bruce (“The Shawshank Redemption,” “Seven,” “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”), production designer Salvador Parra (“Volver”) and Oscar-winning composer James Horner (“Avatar,” “Titanic,” “Braveheart”).
