For the Least is a short documentary about American Catholics who marched to Guantanomo to bring spiritual comfort to the prisoners and an end to the torture they endure. In December 2005, Catholic Workers--people of faith following the tradition of Dorothy Day--marched over 70 km in the hopes of entering the prison. Ultimately, although they could not actually visit the prisoners, they camped outside the Cuban military limit, fasting and praying for the detainees. The video is in the format of a letter written to the U.S. Department of Treasury that currently investigates the activists' journey to Guantanamo. If found guilty for breaking sanctions on Cuba by marching to Guantanamo, the Catholic Workers can face up to $50,000 in fines or 20 years of jail time.
