In the city of Pasto, Colombia in 1966, amateur historian Doctor Justo Pastor Proceso makes a parade float for Carnival that satirizes Simâon Bolâivar, a gesture which sets a fateful series of events in motion.

Dr. Justo Pastor thinks he has everything. His hobby is to investigate the true story of Simon Bolivar. His wife makes fun of him, his daughters don't take him into account, and his friends take advantage. The doctor will ride a cart to show the historic Bolivar. That decision will mobilize the active forces, the governor, generals and even a guerrilla formatting cell.
En apariencia, el doctor Justo Pastor Proceso Lopez lo tiene todo para sentirse afortunado: es ginecologo en Pasto, una pequena ciudad al sur de Colombia, tiene dos residencias, una mujer atractiva, una hija pequena y otra adolescente, y una aficion para sus ratos libres: investigar la verdadera historia de Simon Bolivar. Pero los enredos en los que se ve envuelto a raiz de la fiesta de los Inocentes y los desfiles carnavalescos del ano 1966, hacen caer las falsas apariencias, y el sorprendido doctor Justo Pastor Proceso asume que en realidad su mujer se burla de el, sus hijas no le tienen demasiado en cuenta, y sus amigos se aprovechan. Cuando el cacique local la emprende a tiros contra los artesanos que preparaban una carroza burlesca donde se le injuria, al doctor se le ocurre aprovecharla para que el grupo escultorico muestre en su lugar la catadura historica del libertador Bolivar. Sin el suponerlo, esa decision movilizara a las fuerzas vivas, el gobernador, los generales e incluso una celula guerrillera en formacion. El vodevil da paso a la farsa y la farsa a un peligro real y una amenaza fatidica. En la Colombia de los anos sesenta todos prefieren vivir en falso antes de cuestionar los mitos fundacionales.

With too much spare time on his hands, Dr. Justo Pastor's hobby is to investigate the true story of Simon Bolivar, but when he enlists the help of local artisans to create a mock chariot, the circus he creates mobilizes active forces, the governor, generals and even a guerrilla faction.
