    • Synopsis
    • The Liberators Simón Bolivar and Antonio José de Sucre visit Mrs Juana Azurduy de Padilla in November 1825 in the city of Chuquisaca.
      Living in poverty, the heroine welcomes the distinguished visitors in the patio of her humble room. There, with dismay at seeing her living in that condition in the already free homeland, the Liberators are astonished to hear from her own lips the stories and ups and downs of many of the heroes of the independence-seeking guerrilla in the War of the Republiquetas, and also her own experience during the sixteen years of fierce battle against the Spanish rule.
