Portrait of the "Peruvian Che Guevara”, a famous Trotskyist guerrilla and legendary peasant leader of the 60s, who preferred to deconstruct his leadership and to encourage self- government becoming the anonymous Hugo Indio. Starting with a journey to the forgotten jungle village where Hugo Blanco’s fight and fame began, the cineast looks for the traces of the young black-bearded man with a gun on his shoulder and raised fist shouting "Land or Death!" & finds the traces of the indigenous peasant movement. In the 2nd part, she meets the white-bearded and tireless Hugo Blanco, her father’s revolutionary hero. He is now - in the aftermath of the Peruvian Internal Armed Conflict - an environmental and indigenous activist. How and why did the inspiring hero come to withdraw from his position of leadership? The film is a diptych divided by a hiatus of mourning for the rivers of indigenous blood that flowed when a generation’s dream turned into a nightmare: the dream of the armed revolution.
