Adapted from Che Guevara's best-selling autobiographical journal, this thrilling drama finds the future revolutionary as an asthmatic young medical student, setting off to ride from Buenos Aires through Chile and Peru to Venezuela, with his best friend, Alberto Granado – a journey that not only reveals the physical majesty of the South American continent, but serves also to awaken his social conscience. Brazilian director Walter (Central Station) Salles frames Guevara's rite-of-passage as a classic road movie. A love-letter to a continent and its people, from one of their own.
