Granito tells the stories of five main characters whose destinies are joined together by Guatemala's turbulent past. Even though the Guatemalan civil war spanned from 1960-1996, Granito focuses in on the early 1980s and its ramifications for the country.

Pamela Yates is an American documentary filmmaker and co-founder of Skylight Pictures. Four of her films have been nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.

Paco Onis is a partner at Skylight Pictures, and previously produced documentaries for PBS, National Geographic and a range of other programs.
