Academy Award winners Robert De Niro and Jeremy Irons star as two men of God who, by very different means, defy the greatest military powers of the world to protect the people who seek sanctuary in The Mission. 1756, Spain and Portugal, the two great global powers, have signed a treaty dividing the entire world between the slave-trading Portuguese empire and the Spanish empire, which has outlawed slavery. Deep in the Amazon rain forest, just inside the Spanish side of the meridian dividing the two domains, lies a Christian mission run by the deeply spiritual Gabriel (Irons) and former-slave trader, soldier and murderer Rodrigo(De Niro), who seeks his own personal redemption.
