Through archival footage and one-on-one interviews, Marrero Alfonso brings to life a turbulent time while painting the portrait of a man who never betrayed his beliefs.

Ícono, leyenda, el fugitivo más buscado por el FBI y, el 23 de septiembre de 2005, mártir del movimiento independentista puertorriqueño tras ser asesinado por un francotirador durante una redada del FBI en su casa en el centro de la isla. Esté de acuerdo o no con él, no se puede negar que Filiberto Ojeda Ríos, comandante en jefe del Ejército Popular Boricua "Los Macheteros", es una figura fundamental en la historia política reciente de Puerto Rico. A través de imágenes de archivo y entrevistas personales, Marrero Alfonso le da vida a una época turbulenta mientras pinta el retrato de un hombre que nunca traicionó sus ideales.
