Ernesto Che Guevara and his friend Alberto at the age of 23 in the year 1952 take their Norton 500cc motorcycle on a 5,000 mile 8 month journey across South America. They leave Buenos Aires and end up on foot after their motorcycle breaks down to Machu Pichu and a Leper Colony in Peru by boat and raft. They meet many poor along the way and hear of the various injustices in Latin lives.  

Che Guevara’s eventual 1967 CIA assisted execution in the Bolivian jungle.
