Synopsis

A man elected by his people to become the head of a newly independent country is ousted a short time later by a coup d´état. He flees into the mountains where loyal troops are rumored to be waiting for him, the plan being to emerge from exile and retake power. As he follows his guards into the mountains in order to regroup with his true followers and bring about a return to the glory days, he is initially full of hope. But the journey turns out to be a restless one between trust and mistrust, hope and despair. His dreams blend with reality as his feelings of insecurity grow. Finally, he is forced to face his fate.
