In 1952, 23-year-old medical student Ernesto Guevara and his best friend Alberto Granado embark on a motorbike journey across Latin America. Encountering inequality and poverty, the experience would define the life of the man who later came to be known as ’’Ché’’–leader of the Cuban Revolution.
Capturing a young Che Guevara’s emerging social and political consciousness in the time before he was a revolutionary, this road-trip travelogue through Latin America is a touching tribute to a near-mythic figure’s formative years. Adapted from Guevara’s memoirs, and starring Gael García Bernal.
