Trini is the son of a Mexican farmer from San Bartoldo. His Uncle Jeronimo is cruelly tortured by the sons of land owner Torres. Trini and the farmers from the village take revenge and destroy the land owner’s house who takes refuge on a neighbor’s estate. The local Indians defeat the master’s soldiers even before Zapata’s peasant army comes to their aid. When Trini hears of a conspiracy against Zapata, he tries to warn him. But he is too late.
