A girl boarding a pawn worker (Anna), will accompany theem from the start guiding them through the enigmatic and alluring world of myths outside the religion they were raised and events in the country, which in spite children, will not stop, that sooner or later overtake slapping and taking away the most precious. While Toño read the history, legends begin to wrap him, not believing what the diary says.
The innocence, the legends, the courage, the incredible and historic in the history intermingle Dominic leading to a text that does not explain the events, just let it happen, giving them the opportunity to be from another point of view.
Those children, have the opportunity to interact with great personalities of his generation who changed the course of the history of Mexico, progress overwhelming and cruelty of men, do not let the legends die and chasing, them trying to be heroes lose even life.
