Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

For centuries the highly advanced society of the Aztecs has fascinated history scholars. In this documentary exploring the origins, cultural aspects, and ultimate downfall of the once-mighty civilization, filmmakers not only offer a guided tour of the great temple of Tenochtitlan, but also speak with noted scholars to find out just how a band of over 1,000 Aztecs gathered to assemble a powerful nation in just under 400 years, only to fall to the Spanish in a matter of months.
