Ignacio Sanchez was not only a fighter but also a businessman, playwright and actor. In 1934, he died young in the bullfighting arena and became a legend - thanks to Federico Garcia Lorca's homage to him in the poem "Llanto por Ignacio Sanchez Mejias". Making spectacular use of rare archive footage, the film is a stunning and high-quality portrait of an intellectual bullfighter unlike any other.
