Synopsis

This is the story of a battle for power in Mexico; of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who defied his country’s institutions by proclaiming himself legitimate president after losing the 2006 elections by less than one percentage point. For 20 months, one of the most controversial politicians in Mexico’s history allowed an independent film crew to accompany him, step by step, from his days as Mayor of Mexico City (spring 2005) to his self proclamation and peaceful confrontation with the administration headed by Felipe Calderon Hinojosa.
