Born in 1914, during the Mexican Revolution, the story of Octavio Paz aligns with the one of the twentieth century, a century of constant movements and restructurings, of which the Mexican poet was witness and participant. Celebrating the centenary of his birth this documentary tackles his firsts 54 years of life, through the most important events in his public and private life. From his lonely childhood in the home of this intellectual grandfather Irineo Paz, to the years as ambassador of Mexico in India, including his days in Spain during the Civil War, in the United States and in Paris where he became part of the Andre Breton\'s surrealist movement. Joy and tragedy, love and death, success and pain forged the character and marked the poetical and essay work of Octavio Paz, whom at the time of the tormented summer of 1968 stood out as one of the greatest writers of hispanic-american literature.
