The Storm That Swept Mexico tells the story of the Mexican Revolution, the first major political and social revolution of the 20th century. The revolution not only changed the course of Mexican history, transforming economic and political power within the nation, but also profoundly impacted the relationships between Mexico, the U.S. and the rest of the world. Part 1 begins with the overthrow of dictator Porfirio Diaz in 1910 through ten bloody years of armed conflict. Part 2 tells the story of the legacy of the revolution and ends with the 1968 massacre at the Tlatelolco housing project in Mexico City.
