In rural Mexico, during the peasant revolts of the 1970s, Plutarco, his son Genaro and grandson Lucio lead double lives. On the one hand, they are simple country musicians, and on the other they actively support the peasant guerrilla movement against the oppressor government. When the army occupies the village, the rebels are forced to flee and leave their ammunition behind. Making the most of the fact that he looks like an inoffensive violinist, Plutarco has a plan: to recover the munitions hidden in his cornfield.

Surprisingly powerful movie......strong performance by the main character

A brilliantly-directed independant film with haunting black-&-white images and a sad-but-dignified story. Don Ángel Tavira (Plutarco)'s natural-yet-solemn performance was particularly memorable.
See it, especially if you are interested in South America's human rights & political movements.
