Synopsis:

During the turmoil of the fall of the Venezuelan Second Republic, “El Libertador” Simón Bolívar (Roque Valero) flees to Jamaica, and subsequently to Haiti, with no money or friends. While there, he struggles to mobilize the various and sometimes conflicting interests of the Caribbean region’s colonies and the European powers who oppose Bolívar’s project of liberating Latin America. A stirring dramatization of the little known Caribbean year (May 1815 – May 1816) of El Libertador, Bolívar is a sumptuous period piece that depicts the passions, adventures, and trials of one of Latin America’s greatest revolutionaries.
