On 6 December 1914, revolutionaries Emiliano Zapata and Pancho Villa took control of Mexico City. Over a century later, a group of rural actors will seek to relive that glory. As they make their way through Mexican towns from their home in Quebrantadero, Morelos, to the capital city, members of the troupe find themselves confronting the past—as well as the present.
