The lost link in the life and work of one of the twentieth century's greatest revolutionaries.

In 1965, Che Guevara, one of the heroes of the Cuban Revolution, known throughout the world as 'el Che', vanished.  He eventually surfaced in the newly independent Congo where, with a hundred Cuban guerilla fighters to assist him, he put to the test his theories about how to help the peoples of Africa throw off the yoke of colonial imperialism. The diaries Che kept during this time reflect the bitter failure of an ideological dream: the first steps in the catastrophic, if heroic, adventure that was ultimately to lead to his death in the Bolivian jungle.
