How did a boy from a backward town on the Caribbean coast become a writer who won the hearts of millions, from the poorest to the most powerful political leaders, and whose works changed our perception of reality?

This is the incredible story of Gabriel García Márquez — ‘Gabo’ to all of Latin America — winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize for Literature, author of the globally popular masterpiece One Hundred Years of Solitude, and the most popular and perhaps best writer in Spanish since Cervantes.

Growing up in the poverty and violence, he was propelled by a love of life and a sensual, magical sensibility. He pioneered life-affirming literature and — through his militant journalism and friendships with leaders like Fidel Castro and Bill Clinton — was at the forefront of the political struggles of the 70s and 80s.

More than just a biography, this film is a powerful narrative following the interwoven threads of Márquez’s life and work to reveal the incredible power of human imagination.
