SYNOPSIS: It is January 1st, 2006; thousands of indigenous Zapatistas in Chiapas, Southern Mexico prepare to say farewell to their spokesman Subcomandante Marcos. His mission: to travel across the country for the next six months to learn from the resistance of Mexican men and women who fight for a better Mexico. This challenge is not without risks… by irrigating the seeds of rebellion and solidarity of an entire country, this journey is a provocation against those who control the country’s economy and it’s image. How will those in power respond?
