The Mission is an epic that tells a story about a Catholic missionary and a slave trader In this movie in the mid-eighteenth century the Jesuit priests in what is today northeastern Argentina and Western Paraguay find themselves caught in a not unusual struggle The action between the Pope in Rome and two of Europes most aggressive temporal powers went on for years For nearly two centuries under the protection of the Spanish king the Jesuits baptized Indians and set up missions The missions had a lot of honor that is portrayed by others as well as resented by others In this movie there is complete unity within the community as in working living and worshipping together In the Mission there is unity because the missions provide protection for the Indians whom the Portuguese colonists covert into slaves At this time slavery is officially sanctioned by Portugal and unofficially tolerated by Spain When Spain and Portugal agree to reset the boundaries between their South American possessions the Jesuit missions are to come under Portuguese control If there are Indians who refuse to emigrate they are to be sold into slavery This is something the Indians do not want to have to do The Indians enjoy being in the presence of each other They all understand the goal about protecting their families and religion Therefore women are allowed to have only one child per parent in case they have to run from slavery or death The Indians fall in love and gain so much respect for the Jesuits However the Jesuits are blame by Portuguese for having such a good relationship with the tribes that other countries resent them by acts
