What price would you pay for freedom? In 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, as General Gorostieta (Garcia), the retired military man who at first thinks he has nothing personal at stake as he and his wife (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, as he begins to see the cost of religious persecution on his countrymen . . . and transforms a rag-tag band of rebels into a heroic force to be reckoned with. The General faces impossible odds against a powerful and ruthless government. Yet 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.
For Greater Glory was released in theaters on June 1, 2012 by ARC Entertainment and grossed over $5 million in domestic box office.
Garcia is currently working on Jonathan Jakubowitz’s Hands of Stone with Robert De Niro and Gael Garcia Bernal and also filming Admissions with Vera Farmiga (Safe House).
