Never before in history has the population of a country suffered more than during the Mexican Revolution. For over a decade, the poor of that country carried on a struggle against the government, the rich landowners and even the Catholic Church.

Benito, a young man wishing to become a true revolutionary patriot, joins the forces of Pancho Villa, only to find that his duties make him little more than a horse thief! When he is saved from a government death squad by wealthy Mexican-American rancher Alejandro Guerra, he decides to change his occupation, using his skills with livestock to repay his newfound benefactor.

However, Benito soon learns, along with Guerra, that La Revolución is bent on drawing everything and everyone into the bloody conflict. Along the way, both men find the war's treacherous combatants and ever-shifting alliances will shape life-and death-for years to come.
