The assassination of populist leader Jorge Eliécer Gaitán in 1948 is one of the great unsolved mysteries of Colombian history. The presumptive murderer is Juan Roa Sierra. A loving family man with a confused sense of reality and a burning aspiration to achieve greatness, Roa believes he is the reincarnation of a famous Colombian general. Feeling slighted after a meeting with Gaitán, he starts plotting his murder -- but by the time he changes his mind things have already gone too far
