In 1952, twenty-three year old medical student Ernesto Guevara de la Serna - Fuser to his friends and later known as 'Ernesto Che Guevara' - one semester away from graduation, decides to postpone it to accompany his twenty-nine year old biochemist friend Mial on his four month motorcycle trip throughout South America, starting from their home in Buenos Aires. Their quest is to see things they've only read about in books about the continent on which they live, and to finish that quest on Alberto's thirtieth birthday on the other side of the continent in the Guajira Peninsula in Venezuela.
