This visual essay was recorded in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The work covers several facets of the birth, death, execution and relevance of Francisco Morazán, one of the most controversial historical figures in Central America.

From the question who was Francisco Morazán and what does he represent? the work shows the lack of recognition and collective amnesia of our own history.

A counterpoint between Image and sound, creates a text that runs through the labyrinths of a myth and proposes an identity between the person and the place, between past and present and between execution and FTA (free trade agreement between Central America and the United States).
