1948, la Guerre Froide s'est propagée jusqu'au Chili. Au Congrès, le sénateur Pablo Neruda critique ouvertement le gouvernement. Le président Videla demande alors sa destitution et confie au redoutable inspecteur Óscar Peluchonneau le soin de procéder à l'arrestation du poète. Neruda et son épouse, la peintre Delia del Carril, échouent à quitter le pays et sont alors dans l'obligation de se cacher. Neruda joue avec l'inspecteur, laisse volontairement des indices pour rendre cette traque encore plus dangereuse et plus intime. Dans ce jeu du chat et de la souris, il y voit l'occasion de se réinventer et de de devenir à la fois un symbole pour la liberté et une légende littéraire.

The film follows Chávez's efforts to organize 50,000 farm workers in California, some of whom were braceros—temporary workers from Mexico permitted to live and work in the United States in agriculture, and required to return to Mexico if they stopped working. Working conditions are very poor for the braceros, who also suffer from racism and brutality at the hands of the employers and local Californians. To help the workers, César Chávez (Michael Peña) forms a labor union known as the United Farm Workers (UFW). Chávez's efforts opposed, sometimes violently, by the owners of the large industrial farms where the braceros work. The film touches on several major nonviolent campaigns by the UFW: the Delano grape strike, the Salad Bowl strike, and the 1975 Modesto march.

Marley Corbett (Kate Hudson) is a quickwitted, carefree ad executive living in New Orleans, who embraces her easy going attitude, shuns any major responsibilities, and gains support and strength from a close circle of friends. She also enjoys casual dating and refuses to fall in love. One day, after an appointment, she is told by Dr. Julian Goldstein (Gael García Bernal) that she has terminal cancer. He is deeply impressed by the way Marley accepts the news with humour and dignity. While under anesthetic, God (Whoopi Goldberg) appears to Marley in heaven and asks her to make three wishes. She chooses to fly, to win a million dollars (not tax free), and a third that is later revealed.
