The project examines the role of music in the resistance movement of El Salvador during two decades of military dictatorship. Our Right to Sing, is the first film on the musical byproduct of this collective experience, something Fuentes witnessed first-hand as member of a musical group inspired by the principles of Liberation Theology and with the arson of the San Jose Catholic Church, where she was parishioner. After the assassination of friends and classmates, Fuentes fled from her native El Salvador to Mexico where she lived seven years.
