The many, varied and pluralistic concepts of Human Rights in Latin America are discussed from the point of view of characters who are, in some cases, the protagonists of the contemporary history of the continent. Musicians, writers, architects, teachers, ordinary people in countries that are in a constant process of transformation of their societies. In their statements are addressing issues that are beyond what we traditionally define human rights.
Presented in chapters, the film comes to understanding individual and collective rights as gender, sexual orientation, education, communication, environment, indigenous peoples, public safety and military dictatorships. In presenting these issues, the proposal is to analyze how human rights can be an element of integration in Latin America through a new vision of the concepts that define life as a basic right to be conquered.
