Led by Antonio Serrano, arrives "Morelos", a depiction of the final years in the life of José María Morelos y Pavón (1812-1815), a leader of Mexican independence movement. After leading the siege of Cuautla, Morelos reorganized his troops and took the city of Oaxaca. With more than half of Mexico's territory in his hands, Morelos was still determined to take the port of Acapulco, where the royalist troops reorganized and planned to recover ground. The film captures two inseparable facets of the life of a Mexican hero: contradictions and passions.
