Synopsis

Hugo Chavez, the Pres­i­dent of Venezuela, is undoubt­edly the most sin­gu­lar, para­dox­i­cal and colour­ful fig­ure of all the politi­cians who have marked the his­tory of the Latin-American con­ti­nent in the past twenty years. This forty-six year old for­mer para­trooper offi­cer admires Simon Boli­var, the Che and Jesus Christ he very often quotes. When he came into power the social and eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion of the coun­try was dis­as­trous — despite its oil.

For the past two years he has been fight­ing all bat­tles with the enthu­si­asm of the crowds of under­priv­i­leged, whose hero he is, as sole sup­port. Is he going to erad­i­cate mis­ery as he has bet he will? Is he going to fall into the trap of fas­cism, as his oppo­nents, most of them belong­ing to the rul­ing class, fear he might? Who is this Chris­t­ian and rev­o­lu­tion­ary Boli­var­ian who, accord­ing to our cri­te­ria, seems to be so unrea­son­able in his believ­ing that mir­a­cles can happen?
