Description:
  Lawrence Elman, a Canadian director, went in search of the man behind the myth. He embarked on the journey that gave Che his name. A trip through South America on an old Norton motorcycle. Che chronicled this trip during a break from medical school in a book called the Motorcycle Diaries. Lawrence encounters Che's family and oldest friends who shed light on this true icon of the 20th century. From the cousin who tells of Ernesto's chronic lack of hygiene to the tragedy of being rejected by a woman who is still believed to be his first love.

Ernesto became Che and changed the perceptions of many. His love and friendship of Sartre (who called Che the only whole man he had ever met), his philosophical journals that began at the age of 15; all helped to shape a man who struggled with potentially fatal asthma all his short life.

This is a film that discovers humanity, passion and the free spirit of a young 22 year old whose eyes were forced open on a relentless road trip.
