During his first trip to the United States, Tito Montero follows the footsteps of the writer Eduardo Galeano through the streets of Chicago in search of Haymarket, the place that symbolizes the global struggle of workers for their labor rights. The words of the filmmaker and the work history of his family are intertwined with those of the Uruguayan writer and those of other literary references to compose a personal and collective journey through space and time.
