From interviews with family and friends, to glimpses of the artist at work, no stone is left unturned. In this particular episode, the life and work of Gabriel García Márquez, is discussed. Considered by many to be the leading exponent of magical realism, García Márquez won a Nobel Prize for One Hundred Years of Solitude.
