In 1931, at the height of his artistic powers, Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein travels to Mexico to shoot a new film to be titled "Que Viva Mexico". Freshly rejected by Hollywood and under increasing pressure to return to Stalinist Russia, Eisenstein arrives at the city of Guanajuato. Chaperoned by his guide Palomino Cañedo, he vulnerably experiences the ties between Eros and Thanatos, sex and death, happy to create their effects in cinema, troubled to suffer them in life. Here, we observe this creative genius as he grapples with the desires and fears of love, sex and death over the course of ten passionate days and how the experience helped inform the rest of his career as one of the greatest masters of Cinema.
