Description

Hugo Chavez is a hero to many of his typically middle and working class supporters. But now some are beginning to question the Venezuelan president who they believe is increasingly acting like a dictator by restricting their freedoms and attacking an independent judiciary.

This film follows the charismatic leader of a student movement, Movement 13, that is trying to challenge Chavez. Villca Fernandez takes his group on a cross country journey to Caracas, the capital, to celebrate Venezuela's Independence Day in their own way.

Their plan: To get media attention. But on the eve of their protests it is announced that Chavez has cancer. The struggle for attention gets harder and a fellow student is arrested. Can they remain determined and united?
