Nearly 100 years after the Mexican Revolution, documentary filmmaker Francesco Taboada Tabone tracks down the last surviving members of the Liberation Army of the South to discover truths not written in any of the history books. From the failure of the Revolution to the agrarian and ecological disasters threatening their country and the civil war that may emerge should Zapatista ideals continue to be cast aside by the powers that be, these twelve veteran warriors speak openly and honestly about some of the biggest issues Mexico has ever faced.
