Après la Révolution cubaine, la gloire et la puissance du Che sont au plus haut. En témoigne sa harangue enflammée aux Nations unies, réitérant son engagement dans le combat du tiers-monde contre l'impérialisme américain. Plus qu'un soldat, le Che est devenu une figure glamour de la scène internationale. Mais, soudain, voilà qu'il disparaît. Pourquoi a t-il quitté Cuba ? Vers quelle destination ? Est-il seulement en vie ? Le Che réapparaît en Bolivie, incognito et méconnaissable, œuvrant clandestinement à la constitution d'un petit groupe de camarades cubains et de recrues boliviennes censé amorcer la grande révolution latino-américaine. La campagne bolivienne est une ode à sa tenacité et à son sens du sacrifice. Elle nous permet de comprendre pourquoi le Che reste un symbole universel d'héroïsme et d'idéalisme. Son échec entraînera la mort du Che.
