In 1960, Cuban photographer Alberto Korda captured a photo of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara during a mass funeral. History conspired to enable this dynamic portrait to explode on the world scene in 1968 throughout Europe and Latin America, when it became an international symbol of protest and dissent. In the last decade, with the establishment of the Internet, the image has once again travelled the globe in many forms. From protest to commerce, it is constantly transformed and reinvented. It is considered to be the most reproduced image in the history of photography.

This emotional documentary begins as an intimate portrait that quickly expands into broader social observation of teenage self-discovery; both the darkest and brightest places in youth. Shot over eight days over two seasons, summer and winter, the film uses a trans-genre, verite approach in which the subject seems to be directing the movement of the film as equally as the filmmakers behind the camera. This is the coming of age journey of a teenage outsider who confronts obstacles with courage and awareness.
