The Violin

Five elements: a violin, ammunition, an army, a popular rebellion. The fight for their rights. Four Characters: don Plutarco, an old violinist; Genaro, his guerrillero son; Lucio, the grandson, silent witness; The Captain, a ruthless soldier. Three Engagements: living the music in order to be free, imposing the strength of weapons on human will, jeopardizing everything for a just life. Two paths: the respect for one´s ideals or painful treason. A movie that allows you to feel what life is.
