A hagiographic biopic of José de San Martín, military and political leader of revolutionary Argentina commissioned to celebrate the 200th anniversary of independence. The story follows a 15-year-old Manuel Corvalán, who decides to leave his upper-class family and be disinherited by his father to join the newly formed Army of the Andes, commanded by the General José de San Martín. He recounts his experiences at the Battle of the Andes. A special focus is given to black soldiers, often forgotten in the revolutionary narrative.
