The film ironically narrates the journey of a native soul through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise. In the beginning of this journey without return the main character finds a platinum blonde felt on earth, covered with yellow and green cloths and asking for help. The two of them begin an adventure. In this universal periplus around America, whose path seems to have been written by Dante Alighieri, the character finds ghosts of important figures from the new continent, making and listening to memorable speeches.
