Based on the 330 large families in the country, for thirty years ruled by the aged President Porfirio Diaz. Francisco Madero, himself a member of a millionaire family wants to enforce that the liberal constitution per se of the country finally becomes a reality. He wants at any price to shed blood and initiates the bloodiest revolution of the century. Pancho Villa joins with his bands with the liberal Madero. Even Emiliano Zapata, the Indian leader of the farm workers movement, joints with his followers to the group. At the end of many hard clashes Madero is declared the winner in Mexico City.
