Summary The film ... is about the life and work of Gertrudis Bocanegra, a young Michoacán creole who lived during the period of the Mexican War of Independence. The daughter of a prosperous Spanish merchant, Gertrudis was in contact with the top bourgeois and the military. But thanks to her P'urhépecha nanny, she learns the language and becomes conscious of the injustices against the indigenous people. Through a friend, she meets the priest Miguel Hidalgo and this encounter defines her destiny. She joins the independence struggle"--Morelia International Film Festival web site.
