    • Synopsis
    • May 1, 1956. Two brothers, Arturo and Gustavo Martínez McNaught, leave their hometown of Pachuca, Hidalgo in central Mexico, equipped with two used racing bicycles, 100 dollars, 7 kilos of equipment and the fervent desire to cross the continent on two wheels. Eighty-two days, 5,600 kilometers and 14 tires later, they arrived in the city of Toronto, Canada.
      They were the first Mexicans to accomplish this goal and it would change the entire route of their lives and the genealogy of their family tree.
      Today, in the company of these two men, now in their 70’s, we shall follow the same path, in an exploration of the heart, the cycles of life and the unavoidable passage of time.
