In 1931, at the height of his artistic powers, Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein traveled to Mexico to shoot a new film to be titled 'Que Viva Mexico'. Freshly rejected by Hollywood and under increasing pressure to return to Stalinist Russia, Eisenstein arrives at the city of Guanajuato. Chaperoned by his guide Palomino Cañedo, he experiences the ties between Eros and Thanatos, sex and death - happy to create their effects in cinema but unhappy to suffer them in life.
