For the first time, Simon Bolivars’ story is told from the perspective of the man, not the hero but the human being himself; with his weaknesses and troubles that led him to even consider death. Based on one of the most dramatic years at the Liberatores’ life, between May 1815 and May 1816, we live with Bolivar the man, without the uniform, the man who suffered a rough exile in Jamaica, amid loneliness and penury, the young man who thought he has failed, hold on to hope.

In 2014, the film won five awards in Venezuela, including Best National Feature Film, at the International Margaret Festival, Best Photography and Best Music, at the Caracas Municipal Award.
