In 1952, two young Argentines, Alberto Granado and Ernesto Guevara,
set off to discover their continent: Latin America. They begin their
expedition on an old motorbike, a 1939 vintage Norton 500 nicknamed
"la Poderosa" (Power Woman).
What starts out as an adventure gradually takes a different turn. As
the two friends come face to face with the social and political
realities of the countries they travel through, their perception of
the world changes. This experience, at a crucial moment in their
lives, fills them with the urge to fight for social justice.
