THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES


the motorcycle diaries


Based in part on Ernesto "Che" Guevara's journal of his formative 1952 expedition through South America, and Traveling with Che Guevara, the memoirs of his cohort, Alberto Granado, this slightly fictionalized adventure dramatizes the journey that helped turn a restless young medical student into one of the 20th century's most romantic revolutionary figures. Buenos Aires, 1952: With only a year remaining before he gets his medical degree, 23-year-old Ernesto Guevara de la Serna and his friend, 29-year-old biochemist-in-training Alberto Granado, decide it's time to pack up Alberto's dilapidated 1939 Norton 500 motorbike.
