This biopic tells the story of infamous Mexican president Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. Set in 1876 during the last three days of the leader's life, the film paints a portrait of a gravely ill, but quite earnest Santa Anna (Alejandro Parodi) as he talks about the past -- including the 1847 war against the United States that cost his country half its land -- as well as what the future may bring for Mexico and its people.
