Synopsis

As a child born in Latin America, part Hungarian-Catholic, part Jewish, and raised as a staunch communist, Chico was driven to wander half the world, leaving the proximity of Che Guevara and Salvador Allende, in order to find 'actual socialism' - in Hungary. The result: a revolutionary sans frontizres. What happens to him when, from one day to the next, the world rids itself not only of the idea of communism - perhaps justifiably, in self-defence - but refuses to hear about ideology any longer. Is there an idea left he can hold onto? Once again our hero charges halfway across the world and this time ends up in war-torn Croatia.
